- Wedding: October 2014
Tuesday, I’ll be looking at yet another venue. This one is only about 15 minutes from my home, and it’s a hisortical site. It’s freaking huge. And gorgeous. It doesn’t quite fit with my romance-rustic theme, [well, romance yes, rustic no]. I figure I could use more lace & frills to dress it up a bit more.
ANYWAY! This house is SUPER cheap to rent. I actually can’t believe how cheap it is.. it’s actually scary. It also features a pavilion behind the house for receptions/gatherings.
I cannot find any pictures of the inside of it though, nor the pavilion itself so I will need to take my own.
Here is a little information on the house [straight from the website] :
This was the home of Anson Wolcott, founder of the Town of Wolcott in 1861. Construction evidently started in 1859 and was completed after the Civil War. Originally there were two parlors, a library, a dining room, a kitchen, six bedrooms, a bathroom, a fuel (wood) storage room, two attic storage rooms, a full basement and the observatory topping the house. Within the house are eight fireplaces. Roger Wolcott, a grandson of Anson, gave the House to Princeton Township in 1956.
Since 1974 the Anson Wolcott Historical Society has been engaged in restoring the Wolcott House to its original beauty. Two north parlor rooms are particulary lovely. The house is available for social functions by reservation.
Not sure if that’s a functioning balcony off to the left, I can’t see a door so it might not be. But if it is, that is a great photo op spot!
You can sort of see the pavilion off to the right, it’s alot further back than the house.
I’m totally digging the sidewalk, talk about a grand entrance!
I’ll post pictures after I go there tuesday!
Thoughts/opinions? Do you still think I can pull off a romantic-rustic wedding with this venue? Any ideas for it?
