Built to mirror the distinctive profile of Miss Catharine’s dairy barn, the Heritage Pavilion is a center of activity for the Garden. The soaring event space opens onto the Native Plant Landscape Garden and the Concert Lawn, and provides a panoramic view of the arboretum. The Heritage Pavilion is centered on the Garden’s Franklinia altamaha, a beautiful flowering tree discovered by botanist John Bartram in 1765 along the banks of the Altamaha River. Each year, in addition to daily educational programs, the Garden hosts a number of parties under the Pavilion, including Wine, Moonlight & Magnolias, a signature event of the region’s social season. The Heritage Pavilion makes a great bandshell, and Symphony in the Garden has become a popular spring event for serious picnickers and music lovers alike. Jazz, bluegrass and even a tuba quintet have filled the Garden with beautiful music from the Heritage Pavilion.
A catering kitchen, restrooms and proximity to a service entrance make the Heritage Pavilion the perfect venue for a wedding, reception, or other event.
