A virtual tour of historic Scott-Yarbrough House, known as Pebble Hill, is now available online. Pebble Hill is an 1847 Greek Revival style cottage that illustrates the important lives of Creek Indians, enslaved persons, founders and builders of the town of Auburn. The tour of Pebble Hill can be accessed here.

Highlights of the collection include McKenney and Hall portraits of Creek Indian leaders and a painting of Nahetluc Hopie by Henry Inman; a charcoal drawing by George Fuller; Southern pottery and historic maps.
