The Willis Rushton residence is a Jacobethan-style stone mansion at 2832 Balmoral Road in Mountain Brook. It was designed by David Whilldin for Willis Rushton, the widow of Franklin Rushton and completed in 1931.

The limestone-clad L-shaped house features a prominent gabled façade, grouped windows and a broad, balustraded terrace.

The house was purchased by Mr and Mrs C. Powell Noland in 1946 and by Dr and Mrs Mark Clark in 1992.

In 1992 the home hosted the Decorators' ShowHouse, which raised $163,788 for the Alabama Symphony Orchestra.
