This collection contains material about the plantation house Tanglewood, and the 480 acres of surrounding land that is located in Hale County, Alabama. This particular homestead was settled by Page Harris(1795-1887) in 1824 and the existing house was built in 1859. Alma Bishop Williams (1879-1979), the great-granddaughter of Page Harris, was a member of the Daughters of the Revolution as well as the United Daughters of the Confederacy. She deeded Tanglewood to the University of Alabama in 1949, and it is still being used as a biological station for undergraduates and graduate research in the fields of biodiversity and environmental processes.
