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

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.
