Hain-Harrelson House

ca. 1913

Open 10 am – 4 pm, Saturday

Beneath the shelter of ancient oaks and magnolias in Sardis, AL, discover the stately and beautifully restored Hain-Harrelson House. One of the state’s finest examples of Neo-Classical Revival architecture, you will marvel at the fascinating features including the massive front columns, a leaded glass “Tree of Life” window, and the 12’ by 54’ center hall. Situated on 13 acres, the home was carefully restored in 1998 by Ken Parker and Cecil Gayle, nephew of Mrs. J. Bruce Hain. You will feel like a visitor to another time period when you tour this magnificent home of Angie and Ray Harrelson. It is tastefully furnished with beautiful antiques and an outstanding collection of art. The gardens and grounds are beautifully restored and are resplendent in Spring.
