Venue Tour, Fairfax Hall Dining Room
We had the great pleasure this week to visit Waynesboro Virginia and tour Fairfax Hall. Fairfax Hall, also known as Brandon Hotel or Fairfax Hall School, is a historic building. It was built in 1890, and is a 2 1/2-story, long and rambling resort hotel building in the shingled mode of the Queen Anne Style. It has an irregular symmetry with towers at either end of the facade, a one-story porte cochere, a distinctive octagonal belvedere and cupola, and glassed in first story porches. Also on the property is (was) a contributing gymnasium built in 1926 in the European Renaissance style. It was originally occupied by the Brandon Hotel resort. The Brandon closed in 1913 but the building reopened as a school. In 1920 the school became Fairfax Hall, a junior college and preparatory school for girls.
The first thing I noticed on my tour was that the venue sits up high on a hill overlooking a small neighborhood. There is wonderful paved parking, not a standard feature at venues, me and my pumps appreciate paving! The building is spilling with vintage romantic features. Hard wood flooring, huge windows that allow so much light to brighten the long entry area. The architecture is impressive and you can’t help but imagine all the romance & love that may have happened in this building in well over 100 years of its existence. The banquet space is large and warm, plenty of room for 200 guests to celebrate your wedding comfortably. Kim was our tour guide and she was lovely to all our brides that attended the tour. Usually I tour alone but there were brides at this tour and it was good to see how the staff at Fairfax Hall interacted with them. Our brides were very happy with the tour and so were we!
