History

Orion Hill’s story dates back to the 1830’s, when Alexander Donelson, nephew of President and Mrs. Andrew Jackson settled in the area. Here he built a home that was a replica of the Hermitage, including planting the same type of cedar and magnolia trees that line the beautiful driveway. Several generations of his family lived and farmed here until the house burned in the 1920’s and the property was eventually sold. The story of this beautiful property was lost over time, and in the 1990s, Dr. and Mrs. Lester Graves built a beautiful Greek revival style home on the site of the original house.

Present Day

In 2018, Cathy and Don Wilson bought the property from the heirs of Dr. Graves. Researching the history of the site brought to light the historic significance of the property and the Wilson’s, along with their daughter and son-in-law, Shelby and Adam Hartman decided that this was the perfect setting for an event venue. Orion Hill has a wonderful story and the Wilson and Hartman families are happy that they can share this beautiful property with others.
