History

The property that The Larimore sits on was purchased in 1850 by Wilson Larimore. In 1858 the manor house that you can now host your wedding in was built. A number of the accents and details were crafted in the Italianate style, giving the house a sense of refinement. Eventually, the Penningroth family bought the property and for a century used it as a holiday home. Finally, in the late 80s, the house was purchased and the new owners renovated the mansion with attention to all the historical details.

    Larimore provided everything needed and more for our wedding ceremony/reception. This could not have gone more smoothly without the help and careful preparation of Dena. Months after, our guests are still letting us know how great it was. We can't recommend this venue enough!

Officiated a wedding at this beautiful venue in Sept 2015 and could not have been more pleased with the setting and the work of the husband/wife in coordinating the entrance of the wedding party for the ceremony. Made my work easy and I know the couple was pleased.
