"Allen Hall"

Business, Music, Wellness and Worship Center
16515 US Hwy. 11
Springville, Alabama 35146

In 1982, I opened my first Music Studio in my home. I taught in various places over the years until I landed in Rainbow City, Alabama where I had a large Music School Arts Center. There I trained many Choirs, some of which had the privilege to perform at Carnegie Hall. I had 25 Students who were honored to attend College on Vocal Scholarships. In 2006, I closed down my Music School to pursue other endeavors, which I did. I earned a 2nd Masters Degree and went on some wild adventures.

For 15 years, I looked for a Church for my next Home, both for Business and for Living. Our Music School in Rainbow City had a very large Music Center in the front and living quarters in the back. We loved it! I am a huge fan of the old “Mom and Pop” stores where their business was downstairs and they lived upstairs. The epitome of convenience!

I have loved the city of Springville since my youth. I fall in love with quaint antique towns as I feel they have a quality of living that is absent in the bigger cities. We have driven up Hwy. 11 dozens of times over the years. Then, one day, my husband, Philip, said, “Rita, we just passed an empty Church!” We turned around and when I drove up into the driveway, I just knew it was mine!

Long story short, we bought this beautiful old Church and remodeled it into exactly what I wanted, preserving the timeless character of the Sanctuary. We have living quarters in the back, and all aspects of what I need to create an unforgettable experience for anyone who enters the doors.

The front of the building was remodeled years ago to add a foyer and restrooms, along with creating a brick front. But the inside has the beautiful warmth of days gone by and many a
Sunday’s Worship Services with our Lord.
It’s almost as if you can “feel” that Great Cloud of Witnesses smiling down.

We have added an elegant Victorian Tea Room and a very comfy Coffee Lounge. We have a fertile garden area on the west side where I work feverishly every spring. There is a piano waterfalll, fire pit and tons of beautiful flowers for a very lovely outside event…..
Along with two outside lounge areas.

We have a ginormous Red Oak overlooking our 36-foot Concrete Dinner-on-the-Ground Table, where I can almost see it spread full with Church Casseroles, children running around playing and swinging on our huge tree swing, a circle of musicians pickin’ and sangin,’ and the ladies buzzing all around with the food.

We hope that you will make “Allen Hall” a vital part of your life in the future. We are so happy to be here. ~ Rita

Just a few Testimonials.....

So long as laws shall exist, which create hells in the midst of civilization, So long as men are degraded, women are ruined and children afraid, So long as there shall be ignorance, poverty and wretchedness on this Earth, stories such as this one must be told. ~Victor Hugo...Les Miserables

When a man is pushed, tormented, defeated, he has a chance to learn something; he has been put on his wits...he has gained facts, learned his ignorance, is cured of the insanity of conceit, has got moderation and real skill. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
