Are you looking for a wedding venue that is rich in Birmingham history? Look no further than Historic Rucker Place to make your own little piece of history!
Historic Rucker Place is nestled in the residential area of Five Points South. Rucker Place was built by a prominent Civil War Veteran, General Edmund Winchester Rucker in 1900. Rucker built this magnificent house for his daughter, which was given to her as a wedding gift. What a beautiful wedding gift! The home remained in the family for half a century, and eventually became a doctor’s office.
In 2002, Jack and Gail Thompson purchased the home and began renovations. The original character of the home such as heart pine floors, wainscoting, and original doors and windows were preserved during the renovation. In the spring of 2003, Historic Rucker Place made its grand debut as one of Birmingham’s premier wedding and event venues.
