History
Following the death of her husband, Mildred (Pansy) Yount chose Kentucky as the place where she would start fresh. Spindletop Farm was established in 1935, with construction of Spindletop Hall following shortly after. In early 1959, Spindletop Farm was sold to the University of Kentucky and in 1962, Spindletop Hall served as the residence of the University of Kentucky faculty, staff and alumni club. Now, the Club has over 1,000 individual members, including families, couples and more.

    Caitlin and her staff helped to creat the perfect setting and experience for our May wedding. From our first consultation to wedding day, the logistics of “planning” was smooth and stress-free. From selecting the buffet menu, cake options and room designs I was given expert advice and assistance. My floral designer was also given ample time to “ create” her romantic setting. I highly recommend Spindletop and the wedding coordinators if you are looking for a memorable event.

    Our experience with Spindletop Hall was more than we could ever ask for! They were not only accommodating to any and everything we needed, they were efficient and some of the most kind people I've ever met. Spindletop provided us with a wedding coordinator, Caitlin Gilliam, who was the most perfect, helpful, kind, knowledgable, organized, professional coordinator and friend. Without her, I am not sure what I would have done and I know our wedding would not have run as smoothly as it did. Inside, the building was gorgeous - The walls in the rooms are all hand carved and obtain such one-of-a-kind beauty. When we got ready, the girls were located upstairs in an princess-like suite and the boys were located in the incredible basement. It was perfect. Outside, there was not a location that was not spectacular for photos and event placement. We were in love with the true 'Kentucky' feel of Spindletop. I wish I could relive that day over and over because there is not one thing I would change. I highly recommend Spindletop Hall for all events - the staff, location, and overall experience is truly the best!
