On the Eastern slope of the Blue Ridge Mountains, between Charlottesville and Lynchburg, Pharsalia commands majestic views of Virginia’s Wine Country. Pharsalia was built in 1814 as a wedding gift, and continues the traditions of Southern Hospitality today!

The historic home, the parlors, porches, canopies of shade trees, and various out-buildings on the property provide many options to customize your event. The vast grounds and gardens at Pharsalia inspire seasonal, fresh floral designs with professional and creative services available to capture your vision. Poolside, on the lawn, overlooking vineyards and orchards, or wherever your desires take you; our aim is to provide a unique space where you can craft your own special day.
