City Club of Wilmington and the Inn at City Club 

Wedding Ceremony on the steps of the City Club of Wilmington

Built in 1841, the de Rosset House has since been renovated as the City Club of Wilmington. This southern mansion maintains the original owner’s elegant style while incorporating a newer look. With white columns, a wraparound porch, and gorgeous molding, the estate’s exterior will take your breath away. The property also showcases a beautiful garden planted by Eliza de Rosset in 1842.

As a 180-year-old building, its location in the historic district is very fitting. So if you and your partner want to celebrate at a historical site, consider booking a tour at the City Club of Wilmington.
