New Raleigh Wedding Venue – Heights House Special Sneak Peek

New Raleigh Wedding Venue – Heights House Raleigh Sneak Peek with Stylus New Raleigh Wedding Venue Heights House Wedding DJ Sneak Peak Tour New Raleigh Wedding Venue Heights House DJ Sneak Peak First Look Tour
We had the chance to do a behind the scenes tour of the newly completed Heights House, a wedding and event venue and hotel located in Boylan Heights in Downtown Raleigh. It’s gorgeously rebuilt and the history behind it is almost as impressive as what it took to bring it back to live.
We were given special access by the owners who’ve spent years remodeling this property, bringing it up to code, and restoring it’s character. The number of challenges were truly mind-boggling, especially considering that just a few years ago, this property was abandoned and decaying!
Originally built as Montfort Hall for William Boylan (who owned all the land that Boylan Heights takes its name from) in 1858, This Italianate masterpiece was one of the few mansions to survive the Civil War in Raleigh.
Let’s take a quick look:

History
William Montfort Boylan, known as “Buck,” was the youngest son of prominent Raleigh businessman, William Boylan. The younger Boylan was born in the former home of Joel Lane after his father purchased the Wakefield Plantation in 1818. In addition to Wakefield, the senior Boylan owned plantations in neighboring Johnston and Chatham counties and in Mississippi, making him one of the wealthiest men in North Carolina. In 1855 Boylan deeded his son William 100 acres (0.40 km2) of Wakefield land.
William Montfort Boylan chose William Percival to design his home in 1858. In addition to designing Montfort Hall, some of Percival’s work included renovations to the State Capitol and designing the New East and New West dormitories at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. William Montfort Boylan died in 1899. In 1907 the former plantation land around Montfort Hall was sold and subdivided as Boylan Heights, one of Raleigh’s first planned suburban neighborhoods. Since then, Montfort Hall has passed through a succession of owners, but the building still retains much of its original character. [5]
Hotel
Montfort Hall was bought in June, 2018 by Jeff and Sarah Shepherd. Keith Shepherd and Natalia Luckyanova, founders of Imangi Studios, helped to fund the project.
