The late 1800s saw massive transformations. Soon, cars ran on roads previously reserved for horses and cattle. The old world was slipping away, and, along with it, old-style grand homes in the tradition of Queens Victoria and Anne. Mostly built before 1910, these homes are witnesses to the technological powers of the industrial revolution. Now, they are monuments to the past – and a treasure for the present. Among these historic homes, poised three stories high, surrounded by its walkaround porch, and quietly perched to the side of its courtyard, the Manor is a stunning testament to late 19th century architecture. Alachua loved the manor then, and we love it today. You’ll see why. This is a special venue for a special occasion.
