Defining southern elegance and charm, the Duncan Estate is a picturesque venue for weddings, receptions, and special events.
The Duncan Estate is owned and managed by Danielle Eisner Hansen. Danielle moved to Spartanburg in 2006 from Brooklyn, NY and in 2007 purchased the historic house while she was only 29 years old. Danielle is only the sixth owner in the 120-year-history of this house and is the first resident to run a business from this historic property.
