    Aiken’s Newest Tradition

    Meet Number 10’s mascot, Old English Sheepdog Grand Champion ‘Kipling’

    Aiken’s Newest Tradition IN THE MID -1800s , the Legare-Morgan House was a quaint, charming yellow cottage “just before the bridge” and was a part of the original Winter Colony of Aiken, South Carolina. Today, the house has been impeccably restored to its original splendor and is a welcoming, fully furnished events venue with overnight accommodations available to rent. Take a step back in history and experience all that No. 10 Downing has to offer you.


    Tucked away in historic downtown Aiken, steps away from the hustle and bustle of Laurens Street and the beauty of Hitchcock Woods, No. 10 Downing has the perfect central location for guests to enjoy. The possibilities are endless when it comes to events as No. 10 Downing makes for a great location for weddings, receptions, birthday celebrations, bridal brunches, lectures, fundraisers, and more. You can host up to 125 people for a cocktail party and up to 20 for a seated meal. There’s a wonderful flow throughout the house that allows for your guests to easily mingle with one another.


    Set up your cocktail reception inside the home or throw an elegant Southern garden party outside in the garden at No. 10 Downing. No matter where on the property you choose to celebrate, there’s a charming and historical backdrop ready to host your special occasion.


    Beyond the event venue rental side, you can also rent No. 10 Downing’s Main House, Carriage House, or the entire complex for yourself or for your visiting guests. The incredible amenities offered will make you feel like you’re at an all-inclusive resort as they offer overnight guests a butler, a guest concierge service, a car service with a driver, a horse driven carriage tour from the front door, professional in-house therapeutic massage, and more. It’s Southern hospitality at its finest as all of No. 10 Downing’s guests receive a warm welcome and wonderful amenities to enjoy while in town.


    Overnight guests can easily take advantage of the close proximity to the heart of downtown Aiken. You can wake up in the morning and walk down the street to grab a cup of coffee and a bite to eat before wandering through and shopping the locally owned boutiques. Those who endeavor a more adventurous morning can head down the street to Hitchcock Woods for a morning of hiking. Guests can explore the best of what Aiken has to offer just by walking out the front door!


    Whether you choose to host your next event at No. 10 Downing, or rent out the accommodations for you or your out of town guests, the beauty and historical charm of Legare-Morgan House awaits you.
