As one enters the gates off of Highway 187, Evergreen Plantation greets visitors with a resounding “Welcome Y’all”. With rolling hayfields and beautiful landscaping the 19th century antebellum home is a reminder of a time long past. The traditional southern farm has been updated with modern amenities all the while keeping itself well-rooted in history.
The Faulkenberry Family purchased Evergreen Plantation in the early 90’s with hopes of restoring it for their future home and daughter’s upcoming nuptials. Since their daughter’s wedding, the Family has lovingly restored the home, Bridal Cottage, Carriage House, and The Lodge. Recently the Faulkenberry’s have decided to welcome the public to enjoy the gorgeous property.
Evergreen Plantation has opened their arms becoming one of the newest wedding and event venues in the Upstate. Located in the Southern part of Anderson County, the original home, Carriage House, and Lodge at Evergreen sit among nearly 400 acres. No matter the dreams of a bride, she will be accommodated at this beautiful venue. If she wishes to walk down the aisle on the front lawn, speak her vows under the gazebo overlooking the beautiful water garden, or a complete outdoor ceremony in front of an antiquated chimney surrounded by mature pecan trees, the options are endless.
Once a decision has been made for the nuptials, the happy couple will travel down the drive to the Lodge at Evergreen. This 10,000+ square foot building is the ideal place to dance the evening away. As the grand doors open, the guests are welcomed by the remains of a 150 year old Walnut Tree. In it’s second life, the tree centers the entry way and leads everyone into the grand banquet room of the Lodge. The dance floor sits beneath the Scottish Chandelier and towering stone fireplace. Complete with a sound system and stage, any band could lead a most perfect waltz all the while onlookers watch from the balcony. The Lodge is completed with a chef’s dream commercial kitchen, the place to prepare a delicious meal.
If a grand celebration is not ideal, the intimate setting of the Carriage House is the perfect place for Corporate Retreats or Board Meetings. The warm sitting room with stone fireplace and grand piano will welcome guests for drinks and hors d’oeurves. Once dinner is served, the immaculate dining room will make even a pimento cheese sandwich feel like a meal made for a king. The Carriage House is finished with a two bedroom guest quarters, game room, and grand deck overlooking the property.
With all the modern amenities and pure southern charm, Evergreen Plantation is the ideal venue for any celebration.
