That’s just the inside. The lawns of the mansion are truly gorgeous. Behind the gates, the private mansion is tucked away on over seven acres of beautifully manicured lawns and gardens.

And don’t forget the history! Annesdale Mansion is one of the largest and oldest homes in Memphis, Tennessee.

Dr. Samuel Mansfield built the Annesdale Mansion, an Italianate Villa, in 1850. Considered a historic residence, Annesdale is one of the largest and oldest homes to grace the Memphis area. Colonel Robert C. Brinkley bought the estate as a wedding present for his daughter Annie Overton Brinkley, and her husband, Colonel Robert Bogardus Snowden. He named the estate “Annesdale” in her honor.  The Annesdale Mansion and its gardens were home to the prominent Snowden family for more than 160 years. It even served as a Civil War hospital.

Annesdale is truly a beautiful and unique place to get married.
