I have had the pleasure of working at the Mims House multiple times and it is a beautiful spot for anyone's special event!
This is a gorgeous historic home located in downtown Holly Springs. The rooms are spacious with high ceilings and the grounds are wonderful also. The management team of Brook and Priscilla are top notch. They take care of all the details leaving the bride carefree. I would highly recommend the Leslie-Alford-Mims-House.
Great location for a almost any event! The staff there is amazing and easy to work with... makes any planning a dream! Also great spot to capture beautiful indoor sessions if you are in need. I love the cultivated decor and friendly and knowledgeable staff!
