Located within the heart of the Classic City and blocks away from the University of Georgia Campus, the Taylor Grady House is the perfect location for weddings and receptions. No need for guests to travel far from hotels! Beautiful landscaping and interiors along with an experienced staff will make your wedding day one to remember.

This Greek Revival Mansion is ideal for special occasions, offering over 10,000 square feet for you and your guests!

Athens one and only National Historic Landmark, the Taylor Grady House was built circa 1884 by Robert Taylor, a wealthy cotton merchant and planter, and was home to Henry W. Grady, a well known 19th century newspaperman and namesake of the University of Georgia's school of journalism during his years at the University, 1865-8.

After exchanging hands many times, this house belonged to an estate in the 1950's and 60's and was left vacant for thirteen years. The house fell into disrepair during that time, but was saved when the city of Athens bought it in 1966 and turned over to the Junior League of Athens ( a non profit organization dedicated to women, children and poverty) to operate. The house is furnished with beautiful antiques and is a treasured National historic and local landmark. Read less

We could not have picked a better venue. It's the perfect place for a Southern wedding! Not only is it beautiful, but the staff is such a pleasure to work with! They were very helpful and accommodating.

The Taylor Grady House (TGH) is a gorgeous venue, with the outdoor antebellum feel we wanted combined with proximity to downtown Athens. Even better, they are flexible in terms of outside vendors, meaning you can work with pretty much any Athens caterer and buy your own alcohol (to save some money on the bar!).

A few points to be aware of: currently the TGH office person is only part-time, so unless you catch them while working, it can take a couple days to get a response. The person I worked with was always very professional and nice though. Also, while TGH does have a site manager, they are not an event coordinator so get your own if that's the type of service you're expecting.

Overall, I highly recommend the venue. It's gorgeous, historic and can accommodate a large wedding if you are ok with outdoors!

Beautiful venue. We lucked out with weather and had a beautiful day for our ceremony. Had a smaller wedding of about 115 and there was plenty of room. Although it is an old plantation style home, the inside was air conditioned for people to go in and cool down. Absolutely gorgeous inside and out. Everyone there was very helpful and friendly. INCREDIBLE price for the weekend package as well.
