Venue Spotlight: The Farr House

We recently visited Carol at the Wilson Farr House, which is a lovely historic home in the center of Fairfax. Nestled in the Farrcroft housing development, the community uses this as their clubhouse and also rents it for social functions. It was built in 1915 and can hold up to 130 standing guests or about 50 seated guests. I think this would be perfect for an intimate wedding, a rehearsal dinner, or even a larger bridal shower. For $150/hr, it's not a bad deal! Here are some photos of the place:

And the kitchen just beyond:Upstairs there are a few empty rooms. They call this one the Bride's Room:
