Conveniently located less than one hour from Valdosta, Albany and Tallahassee, Pope’s Museum and Farm fulfills your vision whether you want an upscale micro wedding or a celebration on a larger scale. The restored 160+ year former museum and farm interlaces elegance and sustainability, so that your choice of venue matches your lifestyle and values. See yourself descending down the split staircase of heart pine flooring, or standing beneath the century old native landscaping.. Use the lace balcony as a photo backdrop or as a landing spot to celebrate with a glass of champagne. At every corner, you will be transported to a world of elegance and beauty, while staying within your budget goals.
Creating special moments that you will cherish forever also happens before walking down the aisle. Pope’s Pixie Cottage is also included for each couple. Separate from the main house, the cottage is perfect for use either before the wedding or for your first night together. Dream together under a starry night on the rocking chair porch or in front of the fireplace in this intimate fully furnished home.
When planning your perfect celebration, Pope's Museum and Farm believes that you should have tools and features to answer the needs for your family and friends. Your out of town guests can stay on site, as bed and breakfast accommodations are available for up to ten guests.

"I photographed a wedding at Popes Museum and the owners are so helpful and friendly. The back yard area has some beautiful trees that provide shade for middle of the day photos which is every wedding photographers dream to have! It is such a quaint and historical venue." -Kendi Austinson (Wedding Photographer)
