About Fairhope's Storybook Castles
Come on in, see the Storybook Castles in Fairhope, Alabama. Let your imagination take you where it will-- just as Craig Sheldon did when it all began as an addition to the family home, shortly after World War II. The Sheldon Castle took shape, as Mr. Sheldon recycled, reused and repurposed everything he could salvage, far, far ahead of his time.
His resulting life's work, a testament to ingenuity, resourcefulness, creativity and beauty,The Sheldon Family Castle sparked a magic in Sheldon's daughter, Pagan, as well. Married to Dean Mosher, a long time friend and fellow conspirator of Craig Sheldon, Pagan was delighted when her husband wished to help continue her father's work.
The Mosher Castle began coming to life after the Moshers purchased property adjacent to the Sheldon Castle and work began all over again. In keeping with the original style, the Mosher's too, have used local materials, art and craftsmanship wherever possible, including much of their own, and several special pieces Craig Sheldon never quite worked in to his castle next door. As any living form of art, the Mosher family continues to find inspiration and magic every where they look. And so, Mosher Castle continues to grow.
