Two of Smyrna’s crown-jewel special event facilities.
The Taylor-Brawner House is a circa 1890 Victorian home. The Taylor family introduced the jonquil flower to the region, leading to Smyrna’s nickname as “The Jonquil City.” The 2009 restoration was the result of a 5-year fundraising effort by the Taylor-Brawner House Foundation.
The Taylor-Brawner House is available for rent. This venue is ideal for receptions, weddings, teas, meetings, classes, and other occasions for 50 seated or 75 mingling guests.
Smyrna’s historic Reed House (circa 1910) sits on 3.6 acres of landscaped property. At more than 4,500 square feet, the stunning two story home was designed by the world renowned architect Leila Ross Wilburn. Among its many unique features are a large 50’ x 15’ front porch, a distinctive porte-cochere (drive-under carriage gate), numerous leaded glass windows, oak paneled interior walls, window seats, a large warming kitchen, room for a DJ/dancing and much more. The upstairs rooms can be used as dressing rooms or additional event space. With its indoor and outdoor features, the Reed House will be perfect for many types of events. (Please note that the house can accommodate 100-135 mingling throughout the house; however, you cannot seat that many guests or have that many in any one room.)
