THE PENN HOUSE
On the National Register of Historic Places, the Penn House is a magnificent 12,500-square-foot home located on three beautifully landscaped acres. The original home was built by Charles and Stella Penn around 1908. Charles was the Vice President of American Tobacco, which was the leading employer in Rockingham County. The home burned in 1931 and was rebuilt in 1932 in the Colonial Revival Style.
Today it serves not only as a historic home, but also as the area's premier wedding and event destination offering a unique atmosphere and the best in southern hospitality.
