A Bit of History:  The lovely Mediterranean styled site incorporates time invoking Italian Renaissance elements with the neoclassical Beaux Arts style.  This elegant yet intimate building, included on the National List of Historic Plans, will enhance the memories of any special occasion.  The Candoro Building was designed in 1922 by Charles Barber as a showroom for the Candoro Marble Company and is graced with lovely grounds, a Cypress lined avenue and a marble columned carriage house.  The building displays a striking exterior crafted entirely of locally quarried pink marble that was fabricated by the Candoro Marble Company, the country’s leading producer of Tennessee pink marble.
