2013 Annual Giving Campaign.
Through the years you have supported us as we have worked to improve both Carnton and The Carter House and teamed up with various preservation groups to save important sections of the battlefield. Now we have an incredible opportunity to complete or begin work on several more projects as we head toward November 30, 2014. These will also help take us well into what will certainly be an exciting future.
Here are the projects that we are currently focused on:
· 2014 Sesquicentennial Exhibit
· Carter House site enhancements
· Garden fence at Carnton
· Carpet and floorcloth at The Carter House

Have Your Wedding at Carnton!
From two American Presidents to socialites at soirees, Historic Carnton Plantation has been a gathering place for ladies and gentlemen over the last two centuries. Now, the history of Carnton has been memorialized in the best-selling novel The Widow of the South. Make your wedding a part of our tradition as you say your vows under the one hundred sixty-year-old Osage Orange tree in our restored antebellum garden.
Whether you’ve dreamed of a rustic outdoor setting or want more modern amenities, one of our reception locations will complete your vision.
