History

Vecoma is set upon a magnificently wooded forest and is the perfect location for parties, weddings and receptions, banquets, company picnics, and dances.

Early in the 1920's, Cotton Mather's furniture business had flourished enough so that he, his wife Venie, and their four daughters could afford a retreat away from the bustle of Atlanta.

To ensure privacy, Mather purchased property on both sides of the Yellow River. As early as 900 B.C. this land formed part of the extensive native American southern trading route.

In 1927 Venie and Cotton Mather completed a 6-sided cabin made entirely of stone and wood taken from the property. The lodge was named Vecoma, combining the first two letters of each of their names.

The foundation and chimney of this family relic still remain next to the new reception hall built in 1996. The large deck on the back of the hall overlooks the woods, lawn and river. Many couples have chosen this site for their wedding and reception. It is rich in history and natural beauty.

Today, the family of Venie and Cotton Mather invite you to enjoy Vecoma as you celebrate your own historic and special event.

As you walk the grounds, you can see the foundations of the old farm, the Yellow River; and you might even get a glimpse of deer and other wildlife that inhabit the densely wooded land.
