We are only 30 minutes from Carbondale, IL and 30 minutes from Cape Girardeau, MO where you can find an abundance of great lodging options for the rests of your guests as well (don’t forget, we will house up to 20 guests right on the property for the length of your festivities)!

To add to the charm of our outdoor wedding venue in Southern Illinois, Havisham House recently acquired the oldest commercial building in Alto Pass (conveniently located right next to Havisham House). This amazing addition, opening in June of 2022, will be known as the Havisham House Bourbon Bar!  Enjoy a fun day of bonding before the ceremony!  Not to mention, your photographer will love this environment for those fun and spontaneous “getting ready” photo opportunities.  The bourbon bar will add to the already truly UNIQUE experience of choosing Havisham House as your wedding venue.   Our desire is to offer our guests the perfect destination for their wedding from A-Z…and we think you will agree!
