Sadler residence, July 2007

The Sadler residence, or Sadler Plantation Home, is located on Eastern Valley Road in McCalla, adjacent to the Tannehill Ironworks Historic State Park. The plantation was built by Isaac Sadler, one of the founders of the Pleasant Hill Academy, between 1818 and 1820 and was expanded in 1838.

The plantation encompassed over 2,800 acres and was on the route for Wilson's Raiders in 1865 near the end of the Civil War, but the home was spared, and is one of the few surviving antebellum plantations in the Birmingham District.

In the 1970s the home was donated to the West Jefferson County Historical Society by Freddie S. Lipscomb, one of Sadler's descendants. In 1975 it was added to the National Register of Historic Places.
