Founded on 15,000 acres gifted to the Rixey's after the Revolutionary War, Rixey Manor was actually a pig farm (from its founding till the early 2000's), and we’re proud of this unique history. The current owner purchased it in 2014, and opened it as a wedding venue a year later. We understand the complexity and significance of our history, and while we honor those who built it, we can't rewrite it, so we strive to make the original owners roll over in their graves with how inclusive and welcoming our venue is today. We offer a safe and loving space for all couples to celebrate their special day, regardless of race, religion, or sexual orientation.
