History

Amedeo Obici, an Italian immigrant and founder of Planter鈥檚 Peanuts, lived at The Obici House on Bay Point Farm with his wife, Louise. The house was styled after an Italian villa, on a 263-acre farm. Details, including two lions from Paris lining the driveway, Greek columns and expansive windows, create an example of exceptional architectural detail of Italian inspiration. The Bay Point Farm was part of the Sleepy Hole Farm, sold to Obici in 1924, where he lived until his passing in 1947.

    Obici House

    The Obici House was a wonderful place to have our small reception after our ceremony. It was beautiful, and the staff was easy to work with and flexible! We had to book late, because our plans changed a lot with COVID, and they made the process and transition really easy. This venue was beautiful and wonderful!

    Terry and Sharon are great to work with, they were there to answer all the questions and guide you through all the stages. Fast and thorough response to all questions and it was very easy to schedule times to see the venue before your big day. The balcony makes stunning wedding pictures!

    Short Notice Wedding Dream Come True

    My husband decided to move our wedding date up a year due to his departure for assignment. We started planning on December 30th and were able to get reasonable pricing, a tour of the venue, and secure thIs venue for our Ceremony on January 10th. We had a small indoor ceremony with 23 guests. If you looking for a vintage and intimate feel, I recommend this venue. The Bridal Suite and private dining room are amazing. Thank you Terry and Susan for helping arrange our wedding. Could not have asked for a better experience. Photos by MICHAELANDJASMINEPHOTOGRAPHY https://michaelandjasmine.com/
