Elegance and spaciousness make the Kilgore-Lewis property a favorite spot for weddings and other events. This lovely house and the spring in its gardens are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Kilgore-Lewis House serves as the headquarters of the Greenville Council of Garden Clubs.

Expecting THE ring soon? Kilgore-Lewis, an historic house built in 1838 with 3.5 acres of gardens on a small lake, is the ideal place for a wedding day that will be more beautiful than you can dream in a location that is close to downtown but feels like a secret romantic hideaway! Come see for yourself!
