Originally constructed in 1832, the Castle McCulloch not only boasts a rich history, but also singular spaces that provide true fairytale backdrops for a unique wedding day! Listed on the National Historic Monument registry, this beautiful castle was modeled after the elegant structures of Europe. The striking architecture of Castle McCulloch makes it a magnificent backdrop for exchanging your vows or dancing the night away. Here they will find stone walls, stained glass, and a magnificent ballroom space with a giant circular chandelier. This venue is located just 15 minutes from the Wet’n Wild Emerald Pointe Water Park and sits approximately 90 minutes outside of Raleigh.

The Great Hall on the first floor is a large room of wood and stone where couples can host their ceremony or reception. It seats up to 75 guests for a banquet dinner.Though the building is authentically historic and rich in European architecture, this room gives you all the modern amenities you desire while keeping in time with it’s origins. Take note of the leaded glass archway over the wooden door, leaded glass diamond-pane, leaded-glass windows, solid oak beams, the beautiful heart pine flooring, and stone walls. Take the winding stairway to get a closer look at the cathedral ceiling. Two wrought-iron chandeliers, tapestry and mirror accents inspire regal feelings to all who enter here!
