History
Purchased by Harry E. Martin, Jr., in 1931, the property was renamed “Red Gate Farms” by his wife, Mamie Smith Martin. In 1997, Martin’s granddaughter, Laura, and her husband, Fred Mackey, built a home at Red Gate Farms, which also happened to host their daughter Tonya’s wedding. Ever since, Fred and Laura received multiple requests from friends and family wanting to host events at the Mackay House, making it one of Savannah’s premier wedding venues.

    We had the most amazing wedding thanks to the Mackey House

    Everyone loved the Mackey House. It’s so beautiful. They made everything come together exactly how I pictured it. They were great giving us recommendations for caterers and florists and officiants since we lived out of town! It made it fun and enjoyable instead of stressful. Love love love the Mackey house!!
