The Main House
Originally built in 1840 as a 3500 square foot private residence, the Main House at Heartwood Hall has been renovated and now showcases over 7000 square feet of elegance and beauty. Lavished with Southern Charm, the Main House of Heartwood Hall is the centerpiece of the entire plantation, featuring wide porches, large balconies, front porch swings, rocking chairs and towering white columns. Restored to its original grandeur, the Main House at Heartwood Hall is simply breathtaking.
The front lawn is an excellent location for a wedding ceremony. Imagine ascending the winding driveway in a picturesque horse and carriage as it leads you to the entrance of the Main House. Bridesmaids and Groomsmen align on the front porch creating the perfect Bridal Party. Approximately 300 guests are anxiously awaiting your arrival, and finally the moment has come! As you exit the carriage, so begins your grand entrance down the 75' brick walk to be united with your Groom. This is your perfect day, and the Main House at Heartwood Hall has just provided an exquisite backdrop for the ideal Southern wedding.
