The Weir-Jordan House (c. 1846) has a rich history in the city of Greensboro. This antebellum home is on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of only ten surviving structures built before 1880 in Greensboro. The original owner, Dr. David Weir, was President of the Edgeworth Female Academy (now Greensboro College) and founded the first insurance company in the city of Greensboro.
In 1890 the house was sold to John F. Jordan, a businessman in tobacco who served as a Guilford County sheriff, a Greensboro commissioner, and Chamber of Commerce director. The house was purchased by the Greensboro Woman’s Club in 1921 with the purpose of using the home as a clubhouse. More recently, the GWC saw an opportunity to serve the community by making the house available to the public for various functions.
In 2008, the Weir-Jordan House became the home of Savory St. Catering. Please visit Savory St. at the Weir-Jordan House today. With our casual elegance and Southern sense of style, we will provide an experience to be remembered by you & your guests.
