Beautiful venue with very spacious accomodations and it doesn’t require many decorations as the venue itself has natural beauty in and of itself. I liked the options for outdoor space as well.

“Wonderful staff, beautiful location, and an unforgettable experience. So glad my older brother had his wedding here.”

My husband and I LOVE Lilac Hill! Chris was a pleasure to work with. As soon as we toured the space we knew it was for us. We took our engagement photos here at no extra cost. The wedding day went smoothly thanks to the organization of Lilac Hill!

– Abigail Flores

Absolutely gorgeous space! I was in a wedding here recently and it was 94° outside. It was very comfortable and accessible. The attention to detail is excellent. I highly recommend this as a wedding space.

– Brenda Stanek

Beautiful venue for parties, weddings or family reunions. Would’ve loved to see more of the outside area but due to the cold weather the wedding we attended was moved indoors. I would certainly recommend this to anyone looking for a venue of this type.

Quality event setting, spacious outdoor backgrounds for photos. We used the indoor space, it seems there was an outdoor spot to have a ceremony as well. There was plenty of room in the facility for our group to dine and dance. Patrons who used the bar seemed pretty happy with it…

It’s been a great pleasure to work with Chris out at Lilac Hill. He has had a wonderful vision with his parents property and pulled it off beautifully. It works so well for all size weddings. So much variety and beauty.

A beautiful venue and grounds. Even when the temperature was approaching 95 the outdoor space wasn’t awfully hot. The new barn was nicd and cool. Great mature cottonwood trees. Some poison ivy lurking in the gardens so be careful.

– Scott E.

Pretty neat place! Outdoor wedding and indoor party! Very clean and the presentation was perfect!

About The Lilac Hill

The property features a Sears catalog home, barn, and two sheds built in 1937 by the Dietrich family who had been in Louisville for many years.

Lilac Hill is the dream and vision of my father, Don Maxon, who had a passion and love for gardening and landscaping. As a young man he fell in love with arboretums and botanical gardens, so when this run-down, over-grown 80-acre farm plot came on the market he quickly bought it up with the dream of establishing his own private arboretum. He saw through all the rusted-out farm equipment laying around, the unkempt trees and undergrowth that shrouded every view, and realized there was beauty to be had with some effort.
