Have a memorable event to plan and no where to host it? Plan your event in the mountains at McGuire’s Millrace Farm. Escape with in the colorful colors and all the history of this impressive venue when you come to see the McGuire’s Millrace Farm - MMMowned by Tommy and Linda McGuire. This farm, located in the Peachtree area of Murphy at 600 Hendrix Road, was inherited from Tommy’s grandfather, John Jacob McGuire, and can still be used as a running farm. Owned by Linda and Tommy McGuire, McGuire’s Millrace Farm has been around since the Civil War. Still standing on the property is the original McGuire’s house but just like the old McGuire’s Country Store that John Jacob McGuire ran during the Great Depression neither of these structures are still occupied.


Being one of Linda’s favorite places on the land about seventy-five percent of events to take place at the McGuire’s Millrace Farm take place at The Barn.  The Barn is 6,600 square feet, with thirty foot vaulted ceilings, and acts as a large banquet hall for receptions, weddings, proms and banquets. Hanging from the high ceilings are large chandeliers to create a sophisticated setting. This large barn provides his and hers dressing rooms that are handicap accessible and dual staircases leading down from the large balcony to create a perfect place for photo opportunities. In addition to this space, there is a commercial kitchen and pantry for cooking large amounts of food for your party guests.


With full catering available, the chef at the McGuire’s Millrace Farm can prepareMMM a menu to meet anyones personal preference including finger foods, full meals, desserts or anything in between. On top of catering, Linda McGuire loves to decorate for every event. Linda and Tommy take pride in making every event they host change from a dream to a reality. Events at the farm may be held outdoors also, Linda says, “We have banquet tents just in case.” Linda will always be prepared for the worst before any event.
