We are excited to be having this conversation in the historic Merrimon-Wynne house. Located in the heart of historic Downtown Raleigh, The Merrimon-Wynne House was the quintessential Southern mansion when it was built in 1876. In 2013, the home was restored to its original grandeur and now serves as one of Raleigh's premier wedding and special events venues.
