In 1941, the Woman’s Club purchased the Slocumb House but later renamed
it the Sandford House. The Club opened the doors to the home and provided suitable
living quarters for unmarried working women flooding into the city at the time.
The Woman’s Club purchased the home in 1966.
In the mid 1950s, the Woman’s Club of Fayetteville
renamed the now freestanding room as The Oval Ballroom
and moved it to its current location on Heritage Square.
The historic Sandford House and Heritage Square gardens are yours to rent for special events!
Imagine making your entrance from the grand stairway in The Sandford House main foyer or gliding across lush green lawns to your true love waiting for you beneath the gazebo.
