History
This building was originally constructed in the early 1870s. At the time, Duluth was still referred to as Howell's Crossing. The farmhouse received a placard in 1873, the same year that the town was rebranded with the name Duluth. Joseph Moor purchased the property in 1904. Emma Moor, Joseph's daughter, married a man named Lee Payne, building a house next to the original structure. Lee raised his children on the land, the youngest of which, Frances, married Minor Corley. The happy couple lived out their days on the estate until Frances' passing. In the following years, Minor Corley remarried his childhood friend Winnie Guthrie Cain, who went on to maintain the property until its selling to Betsy Corley, Frances and Minor's daughter. Betsy and five of her friends bought the farmhouse, naming it the Payne-Corley House. Nowadays, the venue is maintained by Krista Summerour Ganley, a daughter of one of the five friends of Betsy, and her husband, Michael. Since then, they have been helping beautiful celebrations take place at the historic landmark.

Location
This venue is located northwest of Atlanta in the city of Duluth. Many points of interest are just off of State Route 23, including parks and places of worship.

    Our wedding day was perfect.

    We love Payne Corley House! Krista and Hope were absolutely amazing and accommodating throughout the experience!
    Every question or concern we had, from catering to decor, they were able to handle with a smile. PCH went out of their way with providing the best catering tasting we've had and we couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome. Guests are still talking about how wonderful the wedding turned out. What an experience. Thank you!

    Our big day was amazing

    We had an amazing experience with the PCH. Jen was our event coordinator and she was such a pleasure to work with. Jen was on top of everything so we just enjoyed our night. The ceremony and reception were a big hit! The food, drinks, service, decor and staff were top notch. All our guests are still talking about what a great party this was. Thank you so much for making this day stress free and so special!
