Welcome to Green River Plantation

In 1987, Ellen and Eugene Cantrell took on the restoration project of Green River Plantation. Mrs. Cantrell’s grandfather shared the idea with her that he would have liked to have owned the plantation in his lifetime. Ellen was only 10 years old at the time, but for many years she kept the dream in her heart that perhaps one day she might fulfill her grandfather’s vision. In 1985, the Cantrells viewed the home and estate, but it was not until 1987 that they actually had the opportunity to purchase Green River Plantation. The Cantrells were joined in the project by their daughter Amanda Cantrell, and today, the home and property are maintained in its current restored state.

The Green River Plantation is a beautiful, forty-two-room mansion located in Rutherfordton, NC., and is open to the general public for daily tours, gift shopping, and scheduled events. As events and reservations coordinator, Amanda and her staff also prepare meals for plantation guests. Meals are served by reservation and there must be a group of 10 or more to reserve a luncheon or dinner. There are many times that smaller groups may be added together to accommodate the minimum requirement for reservations. Meals can be served in different areas of the plantation; indoor and outdoor options are available. The plantation offers an array of services from tours of the mansion, weddings, receptions, corporate trainings, church and family gatherings and more.

Please call or contact our Events Coordinator for reservations or to learn more about our services.

    • Hi Brenith, you can link onto the wedding services tab and scroll down the pricing and services for your event. Our prices and services are listed right there. If you’d like a private wedding viewing, we’d love to schedule a time to show you around our facilities. What month are you looking to have your wedding? This year or next?
