Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Once the largest textile mills in the south, this 1902 brick treasure has been lovingly renovated and is now home to loft apartments, commercial spaces, and stylish event rooms.
  • The interiors boast beautiful historic details, like rows of oversized arched windows, unique cased openings between rooms, vintage-inspired industrial light fixtures, and exposed brick, rafters, and ductwork.
  • Homesteads Events at Loray Mill packages include everything you’ll need for the perfect day (trust us, they’ve thought of everything!), including DJ services, event coordination, and catering through their sister company, Homestead Grill.
