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.

We booked The Penn House for our wedding this past summer and I can't say enough about the quality service we received. Judy and her staff were amazing and the venue is such a beauty. Pricing is incredible and it is certainly one of the best deals around the Triad area! I highly recommend!Sent on 01/06/2020

Just and Charlene were both so accommodating for our event! We had the best experience with planning and having our party!
I couldn’t be happier with our event and how things turned out. I had a surprise party for my husband’s 40th birthday! Deep appreciation to Judy and Charlene for all their help! They helped me keep a secret and were amazing with corresponding undercover!😉 The Penn House is a beautiful event space. The Garden Room was perfect for the amount of people we were expecting (50-60).Sent on 03/20/2020

With a very short time to plan an elopement, The Penn House came through with everything and more. We are blown away by their accommodations, flexibility, and professionalism. We enjoyed every single second that we were at the venue and couldn't have asked to be anymore perfect or stress-free.Sent on 01/06/2020
