Imagine your Wedding at Beautiful Belle Grove Plantation...


Built for gracious entertaining and family life by Isaac Hite, Jr. and his wife, Nelly Madison Hite, between 1794 and 1797, Belle Grove is a National Historic Landmark and a center for Virginia history and cultural heritage.

For more than 200 years, Belle Grove has been the site of countless celebrations, including the early 19th century weddings of all six of the Hite family's daughters. We invite you to become a part of this time-honored tradition. What could be more lovely and memorable than celebrating your wedding or hosting your special event at this beautiful 18th century plantation? Imagine you, your family and guests enjoying Belle Grove's lawns and gardens, sweeping mountain views, and its historic Manor House, an architectural gem of the Shenandoah Valley.
