McAlister-Leftwich House: Most Romantic Wedding Venue in Greensboro NC

The McAlister-Leftwich House is hands down the most romantic wedding venue in Greensboro. Located in the lovely Fisher Park neighborhood, this upscale venue is the only one of its kind in the NC Triad.

This Greensboro event venue was once a pair of historic homes. In 2017, Owners Kaitlin Holland, Clay Holland and Cheryl Briley transformed them into a magical event space. The two properties are now connected by a traditional-style black and white-tiled hall.  The result is many combinations of ways to utilize the space. Today, McAlister-Leftwich is known for its refined Southern hospitality and boutique service.

Lofty 14-foot ceilings and elegant bay windows in the Gothic-inspired Leftwich House make it fitting for a cocktail hour or dance floor. And, it’s perfect for an intimate ceremony setting with 40 or fewer guests. It’s hard to imagine a more elegant, yet cozy venue!

Take a stroll down the classic white hall that leads to the Gant-McAlister House. The restored home features stunning black fireplaces and tall bay windows. The spacious first floor can host up to 125 people for a ceremony or reception, and 150 for a cocktail-style reception. The second and third floors are dedicated getting-ready spaces. The 1,600-square-foot bridal suite includes a dressing room, sitting room, dining room, and hair and makeup room, all adorned in vintage furniture, gold accents and gilded mirrors.

History of The McAlister-Leftwich House – a Family Business in Greensboro NC

The Gant-McAlister House was built in 1915 and was a family home for more than 30 years. The epitome of Colonial Revival style with Queen Anne influence, it couldn’t be more romantic. Later, Dr. McAlister and his family lived in the Greensboro house before it was given to a church. The Gant-McAlister House was later moved to its current location at 507 N. Church St. in Greensboro.

The Leftwich House (or Dixon-Leftwich-Murphy House) has an even longer history, being built in 1875. It is one of three notable Gothic Revival-inspired designs in Greensboro. Nurseryman Martin C. Dixon built the house on a large parcel of land in the northernmost section of the city in 1875. The house was sold in 1887 to Colonel A. H. Leftwich. In 1903 the house was purchased by T. J. and Annie Leftwich-Murphy. Murphy was twice mayor of Greensboro.

Kaitlin and her husband, Clay, along with Kaitlin’s mother, Cheryl, purchased the property in 2017. Simply put, they’d fallen in love. From first setting eyes on the historic Greensboro spot, the family knew they were being called to be its caretakers. Truly, it’s a family affair!
