Weddings at Barclay are a most certainly memorable occasion. As you pull up to the front of Barclay, you are greeted by large iron gates which open up to the grandeur and opulence which is Barclay Villa.
In 1819 or 1820, Mr. and Mrs. John Barclay came to this section of North Carolina from Pennsylvania. They purchased a 510 acre tract of land and built an Inn called Barclay's Inn upon this land along the Old Stage Road which was the main route from Raleigh to Fayetteville. This inn provided a welcomed stop for many travelers making a trip via stage coach, horse or foot. John Barclay died on May 25, 1828. He was survived by his wife, Mildred Barclay, and three daughters, Katie, Ann, and Mildred. The inn and land was left to his wife. Mrs. Barclay became the owner and manager of the inn, and a very capable manager she proved to be.
Barclay is now a wedding venue located in Angier, NC. The venue is the perfect location to host both your wedding ceremony and reception. You can host your wedding ceremony outside on the lawn by the gazebo, followed by cocktail hour around one of their beautiful pools. Dance the night away in their ornate ballroom and then have your grand exit out in front with the grandness of Barclay as your backdrop. Located just an half an hour from downtown Raleigh, Barclay Villa is convenient to couples from the Triangle area.
