Tell us about your venue.
GranDale Manor is a historical and intimate setting for a range of events. Built in 1859, the home was a hospital during the Civil War and part of the Underground Railroad. It is Greek Revival Architecture, restored in 2011 keeping the original hardwoods, fireplace & front porch columns.
What makes your venue different from other venues?
We are convenient…accommodating…affordable…but GLAMOROUS with chandeliers and crown moulding in every room! PLUS, we include tables and chairs for 100 guests in our rental cost!
What is the history of your venue? (How did it get started, etc.)
Originally built in 1859, GranDale Manor had been sitting vacant in the 2000s before the Waynick family bought the property and restored the home in 2011. The family houses their law offices on the 2nd floor.
As mentioned before, it was a hospital during the Civil War and part of the Underground Railroad!
What are some of your wedding and reception options?
Inside the home, we fit 100 seated guests or 150 cocktail style guests. Because of the rooms, we can fit a 50 person ceremony comfortably.
Outside the home on our 8 acres, we can have up to 300 guests. Place your ceremony on our front porch or front lawn OR use the woods in the backyard for more of a green backdrop! Our prices are so competitive that there is room for a large tent in our backyard for your reception. Place the dance band on the deck and have a fun night!
Does your venue require use of your preferred vendors, or are brides free to bring their own?
At the current moment, we are completely open to all licensed vendors – no preferred/respected list just yet, but we are building wonderful vendor relationships along the way!
In your opinion, which event (or type of event) has most creatively taken advantage of your venue, and what made that event a success?
We love to host holiday parties and we can fit 150 guests in a cocktail style setting inside the home and already have six cocktail tables available for use. With our attached deck on the back side, it is so easy to create a mix and mingle setting inside the home and encourage some dancing on the deck!
