​​​Family Owned

The Place at Gilead is a dream-fulfilled for owners John & Michelle Edwards.  The couple began their love story as high school sweethearts and have been married for more than 30 years.  They have two daughters, Whitney and Wesley, son-in-laws, Daniel and Mark, and three grandchildren, Lindley, Caden, and Jules.  

The property was purchased in 2014.  After renovations and construction, The Place at Gilead opened for it's first wedding and reception in September of 2016.  Since that event, the venue has hosted many weddings, receptions, birthdays, corporate events, holiday parties, bridal and baby showers.

Their mission is to provide you with a venue for a variety of events located in Hardin County, Kentucky.   If you are looking for a unique venue for a wedding ceremony, reception, family reunion, birthday party, corporate or business meeting, this is "The Place" for you!

Please contact us today, the possibilities are endless!
