Meetings/Events

Historic Rural Hill is a charming setting unmatched by any other venue for your special occasion.  Our new Historic Rural Hill Cultural Center – the centerpiece of our 265 acres of preserved farmland, woods, fields and walking trails – offers a unique combination of vast outdoor spaces and inviting indoor comforts.  Situated atop the hill with a view of the entire farm, it is ideally suited to inspire joy and confidence in the future! 

While conveniently located less than ten miles from downtown Charlotte and minutes from I-77 and I-485, the vast natural surroundings at Rural Hill allow you to leave the bustling city behind, come together to reconnect and focus on your business objectives.  Inside the Rural Hill Cultural Center you will enjoy versatility that serves events from corporate celebrations to group off-site meetings to intimate executive retreats...

As part of your meeting or event, we encourage you to include time within your itinerary to experience the cultural significance and historic value that is inherent to Rural Hill.  Let us take you on a guided tour around the site and through generations, beginning in the late 18th century when Rural Hill was originally settled.  Set up your own recreational area in the open fields, or engage in a team building challenge during our annual fall Amazing Maize Maze!
