Welcome to Shangri-La!!

  • The home was built in 1909-10 and was originally a 2-story farmhouse with double porches.
  • The home was the crown jewel of the Hale family, a home built in the Hale Springs resort area among the peach orchards.
  • The home was constructed from wood that came from the sawmill of the Hale Lumber Company which William and Evan owned.
  • Over the last 100 years, 13 different families have lived in the home. A family renovated the house in the 1950's and took down the porches adding the stately white columns.
  • Other owners of the home include a member of the Hoover Historical Society and Alabama Governor George Wallace's daughter Bobbie Jo Wallace-Parsons.
  • Bobbie Jo Wallace and her husband Jim owned the home till they sold it to Carlo and Dianne Joseph in 1993.
  • It was placed on the Alabama Register of Landmarks and Heritage in 1994.
