The nearly 120-year-old building formerly was Manuel’s Cajun Country Store where catfish and music were served and earlier Cherry’s Market, which reportedly had one of the community’s first televisions. The vision of new owners Alanna and Phillip Vaught to bring back a gathering place for people, comes alive for a great autumn day of making memories in Milton.
The venue has charming details such as an overhead twine dispenser that provided string to wrap purchases, an alcove where a sturdy desk-style phone sits, the original exterior lap siding, the large storefront windows and beadboard ceiling. A large, welcoming covered front porch has been restored and awaiting guests at The Gathering at Milton.
The venue can hold 99 individuals, perfect for an intimate wedding, birthday and anniversary celebrations, reunions and parties. It can expand for larger groups, utilizing the outdoor space. Additionally, there is a serving kitchen for caterers.
