Review Historic Mankin Mansion
Thank you for submitting your review. All submissions are reviewed before being published.
History: Set on a winding road just outside of Richmond, Virginia, Mankin Mansion is a sprawling showplace of the art of brickwork. The residence was built for Edward Thurston Mankin, the founder and owner of one of the South's most highly regarded brick foundries, which operated from 1903 through 1951. Although the brick-making kilns are now gone, the 7,000 square foot Mansion and its five dependencies are connected by intricate brick walks and walls.
Gallery: Enjoy the picturesque backdrop of our lavish, vintage, European styled Gallery for your Ceremony or Reception. The grand space opens through swoon-worthy European doors and is decorated with opulent chandeliers, ornate mirrors, and lush velvet curtains...the perfect backdrop for your heartfelt vows!
Garden: Imagine walking down the long brick aisle in our English Formal Gardens and up to the intricately designed Ceremony Gazebo under our 100 year old sycamore tree.
Pavilion Tent: Our High Peak Pavilion is the perfect stage for your reception with stunning crystal chandeliers, ballroom Chiviari chairs, and draped Italian lighting. Our Pavilion includes custom uplighting and a spacious open air dance floor where your guests can dance the night away!
