 Venue Rental Information

Book our beautiful venue for your event

We look forward to offering our venue for your event.  In addition to many private rentals of the Sandford House, the Oval Ballroom and the beautiful courtyard, there are annual events all year long. These rentals and fundraising events help to support Heritage Square and are used for the preservation and maintenance of the houses and grounds. 

Payment Agreement

Information concerning per hour use of the Heritage Square is available upon request. Please use the form on the Contact Us page to request information, or call Heritage Square at 910-483-6009.

Upon Booking the Venue

All visits to Heritage Square in preparations for the event must be coordinated with a Representative of Heritage Square. The Representative will also be responsible for opening, monitoring, and closing the venue. Each building must not exceed Fire Code capacity: Sandford House 75 occupants; Oval Ballroom 40 occupants; Sandford House Basement 75 occupants.  However, many of the families renting this venue opt for using the large courtyard with the beautiful gardens, where an unlimited number of guests can be seated, as well as having full access to the Sanford House and the Oval Ballroom.


Caterers will be allowed to use the kitchen for prep work. Caterers will have a checklist posted in the kitchen regarding cleanup, garbage disposal, etc.

There are several locations on the property for DJ's and/or musicians to set up. Dance floors are encouraged as dancing is not allowed in the buildings, but is permissible in the courtyard and the basement.

Photography on the day of the occasion may be taken anywhere on the property. To schedule a photographic session at any other time it is necessary to call the venue and to pay the per hours fee for use of the venue.

Care of the Buildings

Consideration of the historical buildings is most important to protect the furnishings, rugs, and decorative pieces withing the rooms. Decorating inside is permissible, and a guideline will be given to all who rent the property. Decorating the courtyard is also allowed, including adding decorative lights, etc. Smoking is permitted in the parking area, away from the historical buildings. Tents, dance floors, special lighting, and bar areas are all permitted in the courtyard. Heritage Square can arrange the rental of these items, or the renter can arrange to work with any rental company to have these items delivered and set up.

A refundable damage fee must be paid and will be returned after the event if there is no damage or extra timed used.

Cancellation/Postponement Policies

It is the responsibility of the client to notify the venue ASAP by phone AND in writing or email if a cancellation or postponement occurs. DOD Guidelines will be followed for Military Clients. If Heritage Square is forced to close due to an Act of God, the client and the venue will work together on rescheduling the event.
