The Sibyl Temple located In Vestavia Hills, Alabama

The Temple of Sibyl is one of Vestavia Hills, Alabama’s most famous landmarks with an interesting history. George Ward, the ex-mayor of Birmingham and a noted eccentric, lifelong bachelor, was obsessed with the Ancient Romans, regularly hosting toga garden parties and using classical architecture throughout his estate. In 1929, he built the Temple of Sibyl on his estate with the hopes of using it as a grand headstone on top of a burial cave. During his life, it was pink with a chandelier and benches, used as a garden gazebo and the entrance to a bird sanctuary he had on the property. When Ward passed away in 1940, his dream of a temple gravestone was unfulfilled and his beloved estate was torn down in 1971 to make way for a Baptist church, with the exception of the Temple of Sybil. In 1975, the temple—all 88 tons of it—was moved to its present location along U.S. Highway 31, roughly 2 miles away. Dedicated in 1976 during the annual Vestavia Hills Dogwood Festival, the temple is now on the Alabama Register of Landmarks and Heritage. Today, the temple has been fully restored to its former glory and blue lights have been installed that are turned on for 24 hours after a traffic fatality in the city.
