This elegant three story mansion provides a unique backdrop to any wedding or reception. Sixteen foot ceilings, a grand staircase, Tiffany lamps and polished antiques make The Brennan House a magical venue for intimate gatherings. With gazebo and cast iron fountain, your garden ceremony will be the wedding of your dreams. A large tulip magnolia tree provides the shade and you provide the romance for a picture-perfect wedding ceremony. Under a tent in autumn or glistening in the summer sun, your wedding will be an event to be remembered. The garden is in flower during spring, summer, and fall months. Dance floors can be accommodated on the veranda or in the garden. Weddings and Receptions at The Brennan House can be as large as 150. Bridal showers, Baby Showers, Luncheons, Rehearsal Dinners and Parties are well-suited for the interior of the home.
