Rich Manor's history is as rich as its namesake leads one to believe.
The property, sitting on seven acres of land, mixes both the old and new. While the structure standing today is around 30 years old, there are parts of the house that are more than 150 years old! Much of the interior is from a deconstructed museum that was torn apart and transported into the area.
Twenty-two craftsmen worked together to retro-fit the pieces, like the wood paneling in the Living Room and the Library, from the museum. The sunken pine log flooring was brought in from North Carolina, while the marble surrounding the fireplaces was imported from Italy.
Throughout the house are nods to the Georgian Federal period and can be seen in the architecture and the décor. While the physicalities of Rich Manor may appear as preserved antiques, the internals are all updated with nods to even the largest family home in America: Biltmore Estate. Biltmore Estate was the first house in America to have automatic lighting in the closets. In many of the closets of Rich Manor, you will find the same quality.
So, whether your event calls for 10 or 1,000 people, the rich history of Rich Manor will keep you and your guests captivated long after your event has ended.
