His family lived and farmed on the estate until the house was burned in the 1920’s. In the 1990’s, Dr. and Mrs. Graves built a Greek-revival style house on the site of the original house. In 2018, Cathy and Don Wilson bought the property and decided to share its beauty and history with others.

    Beautiful Venue! Owners are so easy to work with!

    Orion Hill was the perfect choice for my daughter's wedding! It is relatively new, but they are booking up so fast!! There are good reasons for this! Not only is the venue absolutely beautiful (It sells itself!), but Shelby is wonderful to work with! She helped make my daughter's wedding experience so special. She knows all the vendors around as she worked in the industry prior to opening this venue. She is so helpful and always willing to give her opinion or advice with anything connected to the wedding (not just her venue). You can tell she loves people and loves what she does! You could not ask for better people to work with! This venue has every little detail that you would want and so many that you would never think of! Do yourself a favor... at least go look at the place! Words can't do it justice!! You will fall in love with it and them!! I can't recommend this venue enough!!!! This venue would be great for more than just weddings as well!!
