The Hill




Tucked away in the town of Athens, The Hill offers a beautiful historic venue for hosting a big day that is brimming with graciousness and old fashioned charm! Known as a landmark in the community, this picturesque property is home to several historic buildings, including the home that was originally constructed in 1801 as a private home designed in the Plantation Plain style. Imagine saying your “I do’s” in a rock-walled and iron-wrought gated garden covered in moss, sharing your first kiss as spouses beneath the shade of towering trees as the forest spreads out behind you. The surrounding property -- boasting large open fields, an in-ground pool, and beautiful gardens flourishing with azaleas and hydrangeas -- creates the ideal backdrop for breathtaking wedding photos. Take advantage of the house’s welcoming interior for an intimate reception dinner, where you can dine on delectable cuisine in an interior that is completely furnished with period antiques.
