Owner description: The Redding House is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places and is the only surviving downtown Biloxi mansion. The home features a mixture of design elements including Corinthian columns of cypress wood, Palladian-arched windows with outside dormers, and sweeping curved porches. The multiple fireplaces, pocket doors, and grand entrance staircase are adorned with ornate mahogany and cypress millwork. The grand two-story central hall entryway was designed to enhance the cooling and heating of the house. The high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows allow cross-ventilation of the public rooms.The exterior of the house has always been white, yet the interior features bold rose-colored plaster walls. The walls are complemented by the matching tapestry adorning the Eastlake designer furnishings. The crystal chandeliers, stained glass windows and hand-painted mural ceilings that were all lovingly resorted, remain today as evidence to the opulence of the home.Space provided for up to 100 seated guests and 200 reception guestsHand carved Rosewood chairs and tables throughout the home’s interior roomsBuilt-in Mahogany bars located on each floor of the venue Fully equipped kitchen

This is an event venue only. Cannot just walk in. We tried to walk in but was told it was only for events

My husband and I have attended several wedding receptions held here. The setting is lovely and the people seem easy to work with.

My son and his fiancé were married at the Redding House. The venue is beautiful, well maintained and clean. The staff were very attentive during the event. My son told me that the staff worked really well with them during the planning stages of the wedding in the months previous to the big day.
