A Special Event Deserves a Special Venue

Pebble Hill is a traditional antebellum plantation house, rich with Alabama history and located off Magnolia Avenue in Auburn. Owned and newly renovated by Auburn's College of Liberal Arts, Pebble Hill sweeps you away with southern sophistication and offers serenity in the heart of Auburn. Whatever your event needs, we welcome you to the newest spot in Auburn for your special occasion.

Part of the original Pebble Hill site, the Scott-Yarbrough House showcases the authentic structure with original wood flooring, stately doors, and a collection of historical antiques. The house's warm, elegant ambiance is perfect for events ranging from weddings, receptions, social luncheons, or class reunions.  We would consider it a privilege to host you and your guests for your next special occasion and will show you the utmost southern hospitality.

The recent renovations included the addition of a 1132-square-foot program room, providing space for academic and departmental functions, including workshops, symposiums, and receptions. Right outside the windows, the courtyard whispers of Charleston in Alabama with its ivy covered trees and majestic crepe myrtles. Certainly, southern charm at its best! 

Individuals and organizations both on-campus and throughout the community are welcome to rent the fully equipped facility. Rental information is available by emailing b.foster@auburn.edu or calling (334)844-4946.
