The Hale House was the Hale Family mansion located in the outskirts of Beacon Hills. The house was recently torn down and as of Season 4, the former Hale property is being turned into a housing development. Before its demolition, it was residence to Talia Hale, the Alpha of the Hale Pack and a well-respected leader in the supernatural community. It was also home to future Alphas Laura, Peter, and Derek Hale, and the young Beta Cora Hale. The house was located just outside the Beacon Hills Preserve, making it an ideal location for a family of werewolves.
Hale House Fire Edit
The Hale House fire was an event that took place in late 2004 or early 2005, six years prior to the Teen Wolf premiere. It was a tragic event orchestrated by the werewolf hunter Kate Argent and nearly a dozen co-conspirators, and the fire that resulted led to the death of what was originally believed to be eight members of the Hale Family; however, it was later revealed that Cora Hale survived the fire without injury and escaped Beacon Hills before traveling down to South America.
It was originally believed by the Beacon County Sheriff's Department that the fire was caused by an electrical malfunction, but even back then, there was a suspicion of arson. The conspirators of the burning of the Hale House consisted of Kate Argent, Reddick & Unger, Garrison Meyers, an unnamed Video 2*C employee and Adrian Harris. Kate Argent was the mastermind behind the plan to destroy the Hale Family in the fire. Her plan began with her relationship with Derek Hale, who was then only a teenager; she used him and their secret relationship in order to get information on the family and their behavior.
Once Kate had obtained the information she needed, she tasked Reddick and Unger with charging the fire after learning how to do so without alerting the police to the cause being arson. In the aftermath of the fire, Garrison Myers was the insurance investigator who knowingly ruled the fire an accident rather than arson. In early 2011, Adrian Harris admitted to Sheriff Stilinski that, while drinking at a bar, he had a conversation with a woman who was interested in his work; during their conversation, he inadvertently gave her information on how to get away with numerous criminal acts, including how to make an arson look like an accident. He then drew Stilinski a picture of the necklace that that Kate was wearing in order to help him identify the woman, since Harris had not learned her name during this encounter. A short time afterward, when the Sheriff found Kate's dead body in the ruins of the Hale House after she was killed by Peter Hale, he noticed that she was wearing the pendant Harris had described and posthumously named Kate the true arsonist in the Hale House fire.
