The Red House
LOCAL SPOTLIGHT: The Red House
Owners: Laura and Ed Hill
Are you looking for a memorable venue to host a corporate meeting or event? Meet Laura and Ed Hill, owners of The Red House in historic downtown Franklin, TN since 2009. Aptly described as “an antebellum home with a rock and roll vibe,” The Red House is a fantastic place for creative mixers and cocktail events.
Before The Red House became a part of their lives, Laura and Ed were enthusiastic entertainers who shared a passion for music, family, and community. After purchasing the venue, they knew their vision was clear: The Red House would capture the best parts of beloved rock venues and historical landmarks. The result is an imaginative space where people can come together to celebrate weddings, birthdays, or holidays in an intimate setting. The venue is also a great spot for songwriters’ showcases, including the talented teenage musicians who attend Laura’s summer music camp, The JAM.
Laura credits the space and her team for each successful event at The Red House. “It is all about the ambiance, the original space, an incredible event coordinator, and a team that exudes synergy,” Laura says. “That is the recipe for the really great memories we make here. It is truly an honor to be a part of our clients’ happiest celebrations.”
Part of the ambiance is due to the authentic rock and roll memorabilia throughout The Red House, including a 1920s pearl-handled mandolin, a CMA Fest guitar, and the lyrics for Don McLean’s “American Pie.” Laura began to display these pieces after purchasing them from a friend who is an avid collector. Much like the 140-year-old house itself, Laura feels that these rock and roll relics deserve to be enjoyed by all. “The venue and the memorabilia are more than eye-candy,” Laura says. “They are a part of history.” That history also includes the likes of John Mayer, Lori Morgan, Keith Urban, Lee Greenwood, and Chad Jeffers, who have each autographed a wall above one of the archways.
