A charming historic home in the heart of downtown Ball Ground
The Wheeler House is conveniently reached by guests from all parts of North Georgia and the suburbs of Atlanta. Located just off downtown Ball Ground, the venue encompasses true southern charm with its meaningfully preserved, yet restored grounds and house. Built in 1906 by John. F. Wheeler, owner of the Wheeler Lumber Yard on Main Street in Ball Ground, the house was constructed with Heart Pine tongue and grove floors, walls, ceilings, and wrap-around porches. The Wheeler House is a historic gem that has been given new life by serving as a wedding venue and special event site.
“2013 is a groundbreaking year for us. We are so excited to announce the addition of our 3,600 square foot barn,” says owner Lee Lusk. The construction began for the barn in January and will be complete by mid March. Along with the groom’s suite, the barn will include bathrooms, an industrial kitchen and a loft area for additional seating and/or mingling. Now, brides have the option of utilizing the house, the barn, or the neighboring arbor that can be either enclosed or open in any combination. Each and every wedding at The Wheeler House will be unique to the couple—with each couple choosing different options for their ceremony and reception sites. Summer and spring ceremonies can be held in the barn to beat the southern heat, with the reception outdoors under the moonlit sky and romantic glow of the chandeliers. Winter weddings can be held in the barn, with cocktail hour in the historic home. The possibilities are literally endless!
