Patterson Homestead is perfect for a small reception, with both indoor and outdoor facilities. They also have a great gazebo for outdoor ceremonies. The young lady who handles events (I've forgotten her name, shame on me!) is very flexible, helpful, and easy to deal with. The house itself provides great photo ops with its balconies, brick pathways, and gardens. They worked easily with my caterer as well. I would highly recommend this location!

This house is in perfect condition and is mostly as his mother left it when she passed away. If you like old houses and historical pieces, you will love this. I was fascinated by this guy's life, too. Watch the video about him so you have some idea who he was. You have to go around the corner to get in to the tour and the house. The video was very interesting and made the tour of the small museum and the house even better.

My husband and I visited the Wright-Dunbar Interpretive Center, a cycle shop, and the place where their residence once stood. We enjoyed the visit immensely and would have loved to visit other parts of the complex, except they were closing early for the day. We thought that the center was informative and well-done. Would love to go back some day to finish the visit.
