Welcome to The Mitchell House and Gardens!
The Mitchell House and Gardens is a beautifully restored historic home located in the heart of Lexington, South Carolina. Built in 1924 as a private residence for the Mitchell Family, the house was purchased in 1992 by Phyllis James and opened as the first full-service special events location in the Columbia/Lexington area.
The Mitchell House accommodates up to 300 guests in large open rooms, elegantly and appropriately decorated for your special event. The prices are moderate, the food is delicious, and the service is unsurpassed.
About Our House
The two-story home is gracious and warm, featuring large, open rooms with 12-foot ceilings. On the main level there is a reception room spanning the full width of the house with fireplaces at each end. This stately appointed room opens to a beautiful descending staircase framed by Grecian columns. The house also has two dining rooms, a sunroom, and two restrooms on the main level. A back reception room spanning the width of the house with French doors leads to the garden.
The back reception holds the hand-carved mahogany bar that was moved to our house from a Charleston hotel. This room also spans the width of the house and leads to the garden through our French doors.
The large, open rooms ensure easy accessibility for your guests in and out of the house and gardens.
So that your party may extend outdoors, there is a covered 1,050 square foot wrap-around patio; and a covered walkway leading to a stunning covered Garden Pavilion, which accommodates up to 300 guests. So...“If it rains, we’ve got you covered!”
