“The Historic Blenheim is a remarkable venue that offers a unique, historical experience in a modern day setting. We hosted a client appreciation event at the Historic Blenheim and it was the perfect backdrop for a very elegant and interesting event. The incredible collection of civil war graffiti both delighted and awed our guests. The rooms came alive with military theories, war tactics and political view points from 150 years ago. We received rave reviews from our clients!” Kathy B.
