History

The original home was built by Charles and Stella Penn around 1908. Charles was the Vice President of American Tobacco, which was the leading employer in Rockingham County. He played an important figure in Reidsville’s tobacco industry and is largely responsible for developing the popular “Lucky Strikes” brand of cigarettes. He worked his entire life in the tobacco industry and rose through the ranks at American Tobacco Company to one of the highest and most commanding stations. The home burned in 1931 and was rebuilt in 1932 in the Colonial Revival style. In 1980, the home was donated to the City of Reidsville to be open to the community and public for special events, weddings, and more. The current home is an excellent example of Colonial Revival design. It is the largest and most elaborate Colonial Revival residence from the 1920-1940 period still standing in Reidsville.

    Great Venue and Staff to work with!

    My husband and I really enjoyed our experience with the Penn House for our wedding. The venue is beautiful and has many different locations to hold the ceremony and/or reception, the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and was a pleasure to work with. The staff was always readily available when we had questions or needed assistance during the planning. On the wedding day, there was staff on site to help with anything that we needed throughout our allotted time period. I am so glad that we chose to have our wedding at the Penn House. It was a beautiful wedding and a great experience!

    Perfect Bridal Shower

    The venue is beautiful and Amanda was extremely helpful on the day of the event. She had everything set up and all we had to do is walk in and wait for our guests. The house and grounds are perfect for a wedding or shower.
