Hold your next event at the Historic Cedars …

Built around 1840, The Cedars is Jackson’s oldest surviving residential structure.

Once threatened by multi-family development, the house and property were spared through the coordinated campaign known as “Save The Cedars.”

Today, this two-acre retreat dotted with majestic cedar, oak and magnolia trees provides the perfect intimate setting for special events like weddings, receptions, parties and meetings. The Viking kitchen allows caterers convenient, on-site food preparation and staging. The open floor plan and versatility easily accommodates groups of various sizes. The Cedars is the ideal location for a party of 500 or a meeting of 20.




The Cedars can be reserved for private functions by calling The Cedars at (601) 366-5552 (Wednesdays and Fridays, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.) or the Fondren Renaissance Foundation office at (601) 981-9606. Following are the standard rental fees for use of the facility:
