We welcome you to come inside our website and learn more of the history of Afton Villa and its place in the history of the South.
Although a fire in 1963 destroyed the gothic antebellum mansion, the gardens at Afton Villa are among the most famous and picturesque in the state. Beginning in 1972, Genevieve and Morrell Trimble undertook the task of restoring the grounds. Today the estate contains over 20 acres of formal gardens and pleasure grounds, including the famous ruins gardens, a formal parterre garden, a daffodil valley, a historic family cemetery, and more.
Joining together with friends and family for an Afton Villa wedding will likely be one of the most joyous occasions of your lives. But, what’s even better, is the reception that follows. After the ceremony, you can host your reception in a special area of our gardens. You will not find a more intimate setting for your closest friends!
