About The Taylor Grady House

Located within the heart of the Classic City and blocks away from the University of Georgia Campus, the Taylor Grady House is the perfect location for weddings and receptions. No need for guests to travel far from hotels! Beautiful landscaping and interiors along with an experienced staff will make your wedding day one to remember.

This Greek Revival Mansion is ideal for special occasions, offering over 10,000 square feet for you and your guests!

Athens one and only National Historic Landmark, the Taylor Grady House was built circa 1884 by Robert Taylor, a wealthy cotton merchant and planter, and was home to Henry W. Grady, a well known 19th century newspaperman and namesake of the University of Georgia's school of journalism during his years at the University, 1865-8.

After exchanging hands many times, this house belonged to an estate in the 1950's and 60's and was left vacant for thirteen years. The house fell into disrepair during that time, but was saved when the city of Athens bought it in 1966 and turned over to the Junior League of Athens ( a non profit organization dedicated to women, children and poverty) to operate. The house is furnished with beautiful antiques and is a treasured National historic and local landmark.

    Beautiful house and Easy to Work with Staff

    Taylor-Grady and The Junior League of Athens were a delight for us as the venue for our wedding. The house was all the decoration we needed as our back drop. The grounds are well maintained and the interiors were in great condition, given the age. They were responsive and professional when communicating, as well as accommodating when we desired access to the house for family visiting or when we required extra time during our wedding. It is very rare that your favorite venue also ends up being the most cost effective one, and that was the case with us and Taylor-Grady.

    The Taylor Grady House is an incredible venue for anybody who wants elegance, Southern charm, and outdoor options! Brent and Janet were so easy to work with, and they made sure that everything went off without any problems! All of the staff were always very accommodating and prompt, and any questions we had were quickly answered over email or phone. The house itself is absolutely beautiful and has plenty of rooms for guests to explore during the reception, and the entire upstairs floor is perfect for the "getting ready" suites...half of the upstairs rooms are connected and serve as the bridal suite, and the other half can be the groom's area. After seeing numerous venues in Atlanta and Athens with minimal prep suites, this was a huge plus for us! The ample light in the upstairs window room overlooking the patio is also PERFECT for getting-ready photos, so I would highly recommend using that to any bride considering the TGH. The backyard patio and garden are also ideal for a wedding ceremony or reception (we had our ceremony off-site and the reception at TG). I cannot express enough how absolutely beautiful the grounds and home are, and I would recommend this venue to anybody looking for an elegant but affordable option in the Athens area. Great staff, beautiful venue, and amazing price!!

    We just booked this venue and I am SO excited about it! Our contact Janet has been so easy to work with already and she even met us an hour before the house was supposed to open to accommodate my fiancé's work schedule.

    Since this place is a non-profit it is super affordable and they have so much flexibility with outside vendors. It is one of the only places we found that could accommodate our guest list of 350 anyways.

    Another tip is that we are going to get married on a Sunday which is half the cost AND since there is a wedding there that Saturday, we get half off on renting a tent because we are going to split it with the other wedding. Makes it so affordable! I'm so excited for our big day.
