Woodruff-Fontaine House

Description: Rising from ancient magnolia trees, the Woodruff-Fontaine House stands as a reminder of an era long gone. This beautiful French Victorian mansion was built in 1870 along “Millionaires Row.” The mansion, home to two prominent Memphis families, was deeded to the city in 1936 and stood vacant for several years. The Association for the Preservation of Tennessee Antiquities rescued the house in 1962 and restored it to its former splendor.

Plan your unforgettable day in a 19th century historical home, where weddings have been a tradition since 1871. The natural beauty of the home and the grounds is breath-taking and will add elegance to any event. Planning a wedding can be exciting, challenging, and downright unnerving. The Woodruff-Fontaine house has a preferred caterer list, and can recommend vendors to fit your needs and budget.
