The Heard Craig Center for the Arts is an amazing place to visit. Call ahead and book a tour. You wont be dissapointed with the intricate woodworking and the antiques! This is also a great place for photographs, but you need to schedule it with them, be respectful of the house and gardens. You know it is expensive to maintain... More

Thank you for the review of the former Heard-Craig Auditorium. Although the auditorium was sold to the First United Methodist Church last year, it continues to be a viable large wedding reception venue combined with a Heard-Craig GARDEN WEDDING (favorite location in the City). More

I have attended many events here, and we hosted my daughter's wedding reception here -- the staff is awesome, the venue is lovely, and they are very accommodating.
