This magnificent Georgian-style home was built in 1914 for Cornelius Vanderbilt Truitt, a financier and businessperson, by P. Thornton Marye, whose most famous project was the design of The Fabulous Fox Theatre in Atlanta. In 1937, the house was purchased by Nasour and Mary Mansour, the first generation of dry goods merchants known regionally for their Mansour’s Department Stores, first in LaGrange and then in other major cities in the region.
The Truitt Vanderbilt Club has an incredible array of unique and experiential rooms, nooks, porches, crannies, lawns, and one-of-kind spots to make your special event very special. One of the big advantages to hosting your event here is the opportunity to use a combination of the expansive grounds that surround with the interior spaces within this beautiful structure.
This area showcases many of the original furniture pieces restored for receptions or is combined with the Recital Room and the Lafayette Parlor to add tables for Grand Dining Experiences.
One of the best preserved and most important rooms in the Truitt Vanderbilt Club. When the solid wood antique dining table and chairs are set up for 12, it is the premier place in the region to host a Board Meeting or formal dining affair. Fully set up for electronic presentations, too.
Over 500 sq. ft. of lounging area through the three sets of French doors, provides just the spot to light up and relax with a drink from the old-time tavern styled bar. There are high topped tables, bar height stools and sofas and coffee tables all under big fans to provide for a great atmosphere.
In a small alcove, tucked between two of the grand guest suites surrounded by some incredible original stucco ceiling work, you'll find the Dogwood Parlor. A perfect place to sit, relax and reflect. Perhaps the best spot out of dozens of spots to create images for memories. The Parlor opens to the Dogwood Balcony, the perfect place for wedding images.
