Dr. A.G. Gaston, entrepreneur and businessman, was one of the most successful African American businessmen in Alabama. Gaston overcame humble beginnings to build a far-reaching, multimillion-dollar business empire which included banking, construction, real estate, hospitality, burial insurance, cemeteries and radio stations.

He was famous for saying his business dealings were based on “finding a need and filling it.” This thinking is why The Modern House exists today. 


For the month of February, The Modern House honors his legacy by creating a bold, dark roast blend that is called the “Legacy” blend. 10% of all sales will be donated back to the A.G. Gaston Business Institute.
