Reuben Hale's Home & Sculpture Garden is dedicated to the legacy of Reuben Aldridge Hale, Jr. (1927-2018). It was founded in late 2019 by his daughter, Irma Hale. Organizing Reuben’s 1,000+ pieces of work – portraits, abstract expressionist painting, holography, sculpture (not to mention the records of his teaching, leadership, and contributions to the community college in arts and humanities) – led to Irma realizing that not only friends and family, but also researchers and the public should have access to it long after she is gone.​

Even his West Palm Beach, FL, home modifications – such as an entire stairway built from scratch with a hand-carved free-form bannister and reading nook beneath – are works of art.

Access is by Appointment only. A docent-led tour of Reuben Hale's home and sculpture garden in the historic El Cid neighborhood of West Palm Beach typically takes 1.5 hours.

To arrange a tour, please phone  the above number or email Tours begin on the front porch at 2715 S Olive Avenue, West Palm Beach FL, 33405, and typically take 1.5 hours. 

The home is in a residential neighborhood. You may park in the driveway if there is space to park not blocking the sidewalk. Alternately there is often parking on a side street such as Almeria Rd (between S Dixie Hwy and S Olive Ave) or Belmonte Rd (between S Olive Ave and S Flagler Dr).
