With plenty of room to celebrate with your friends and family, Twelve West Main is easily accessible from anywhere in the Piedmont. This elegant facility offers space for your rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony, catered reception, bridesmaid luncheon, and bridal shower.

Twelve West Main was built in 1916 and is on the approximate site of the John Thomas house (founder of Thomasville). In the past, the first floor housed Jones/Efird’s Dept. Stores and once hosted WMFR’s radio broadcast from the mezzanine. Historical sites such as the Big Chair, the Bell Tower Fountain, the Depot and the town gazebo are all within view and add charm to the Twelve West Main experience. Buildings are illuminated at night.

This beautifully restored building is now available for weddings, receptions, proms, reunions, and other banquets involving up to 500 people.

Contact us to experience uptown class at a small town price. We look forward to hosting your event soon at Twelve West Main.

The venue was perfect. It set up and broke down all tables and chairs. They were flexible and great to work with.

This venue is a great and affordable option for couples interested in having everything in one location. Tables and chairs are included in the rental fee and the dressing suites for both the Bride and the Men are a bonus. The venue is a blank pallet that can be both simply decorated or elaborate and STILL look great!
