Pond Spring, The General Joe Wheeler Home is a historic house site 20 miles west of Decatur in Hillsboro, AL on Hwy 20 / Alt 72. The home of General Joseph Wheeler, a Confederate cavalry general during the Civil War, and later in life, a general with the United States Army during the Spanish American War, is now a historic museum. The Wheeler family owned the site for over 100 years, and donated the home to the state of Alabama in 1990. The museum is one of the most complete house museums in the nation, almost entirely furnished with items original to the site including china, uniforms, furniture, and family letters and photographs.
“This is the first Christmas event to be held at the Wheeler Home since it was closed for restoration 14 years ago, and we are very excited to revive this special tradition,” said Kara Long, Site Director of the Wheeler Home.
