Let your special event become a memorable occasion at one of our 4 historic homes and gardens.
The classic elegance and charm of some of Columbia's oldest properties provide a tranquil, traditional escape in the heart of the Robert Mills Historic District. Our venues are perfect for beautiful southern weddings, rehearsal dinners, bridal and baby showers, large events and festivals, fundraisers, photoshoots, or business meetings. From large gatherings to small celebrations, we can make any event one to remember.
Enclosed by lush gardens and steeped in local history, Columbia’s oldest remaining home is an idyllic and intimate oasis. Multiple enchanting spaces – both in the gardens and inside the house – allow flexibility for any type of event. From the most intimate of ceremonies to the grandest of celebrations, the Seibels House and Garden is a venue unlike any other.
Rentals at the Seibels House include tables and chairs for indoor use only. We will set up and break down this equipment for you. We are non-restrictive venue, so you may use any vendor for any other services.

Once we toured the house and garden, we were sold. It had the perfect look and feel we wanted. Because it is an historic building and property, they do have strict rules about what you can use and not use (e.g., nothing flammable so candles are out) and building usage. However, with advance planning, they worked with us and were able to accomodate several special requests. One drawback is the required rental company. They are expensive and, unlike the venue, are NOT professional, responsive, or reliable. While the look was exactly what we wanted, working with this rental company, has been a nightmare. Beware - up until the week of the event, I thought they, while expensive, seemed reliable and helpful. I learned differently the day of and afterwards that this was definitely an illusion. Despite this, the wonderful staff at the house and our great caterer (Southern Way), took up the slack and made everything work. I would definitely have an event there again, even with the rental company (but this time I am forewarned).Sent on 02/13/2018

the house and gardens were beautiful! The property manager and guardian the day of were very friendly and professional.Sent on 05/20/2012
Due to the nature of the property as a historic building they have very strict rules about decorations and set up. They are very strict on scheduled hours, set-up & breakdown, and cleanliness. They require that you use a specific rental company (an expensive one). I allowed one point because based on my wonderful wedding planner's relationship with the property we were allowed a few small concessions.
I would absolutely recommend this beautiful and affordable place for your wedding!
