“Lovely facility! Attendees really enjoyed the environment and comfort of the facility! Thanks for making us feel so welcome!” - Lee Givens, Northwest Middle School Meeting

Whether you are holding a wedding reception for 300, a lecture series for 500, or a training session for 15, Furman’s Younts Conference Center will welcome you with open arms.

The Georgian-style architecture, outdoor patios, and masterful landscaping provide a picturesque location for any event. Sitting on a secluded portion of Furman’s 750 acre property, and surrounded by ample parking, Younts is the perfect host for business and social events.

You will feel welcome the moment you step inside the lobby, adorned with an antique Furman family Persian rug and plush, comfortable seating. High ceilings and tall windows let you take in plenty of light and allow you to enjoy a scenic view of the upstate mountains.

The Younts Conference Center features a large room which can be used for any event from a group meeting or lecture to a wedding reception. This room can be divided to form 5 more intimate break-out rooms which can be used for smaller sessions such as a business lunch or a rehearsal dinner. An event coordinator will be available throughout the course of your event to ensure that all of your needs are met!

Patios on three sides of the building welcome you to step outside through French doors to enjoy breaks and refreshments. Heller Terrace and DeSantis Pavilion, conveniently located just outside the main building, allow you to also enjoy served meals overlooking the stately Cherrydale Alumni House and the charming Edna Hartness Garden.
