Alabama Castles

Sheldon CastleVisitors to Fairhope's art center oftentimes stop to see nearby Sheldon Castle tucked away in a secluded corner of Oak Street. Legendary artist and sculptor Craig Sheldon handcrafted this unique landmark over a forty year span of time. Also called Storybook Castle, it may be rented to host weddings, receptions and other events. An equally impressive dwelling next door is home to Sheldon's daughter and her family. Both homes' multi-colored shingle roofs are one example of the many ways recycled products were used in their construction.
