Wedding ceremonies at Ninety Six National Historic Site are authorized through a Special Use Permit. At the Logan Log House area only, small weddings (25 people including the wedding party and no more than 5 vehicles) are authorized. The Logan Log House area consists of the grassy area that surrounds the house. Since the Logan Log House is a historic structure, no food, beverages, or receptions are allowed in this area.
Applications for a Special Use (Wedding) Permit may be applied for years 2013 thru 2018. Wedding ceremonies may be conducted from 9:30-2:00 only. Dates available to accommodate weddings are limited due to conflicts with special events, major holidays, high visitation times, resource protection concerns, etc. No National Park Service staff will be available for assistance. Unfortunately, we cannot hold dates. Please read and sign the application and return with the requisite fees. Applications must be submitted in person or mailed to the park six weeks in advance of the upcoming event and must be approved by the Superintendent.

Please note that any photography or filming of the ceremony will require an additional permit. Please reference the filming and photography page.
There is a non-refundable administrative fee of $50 in the form of a check made payable to the National Park Service required to apply for the permit. If your permit is approved, you will be charged a non-refundable fee of $400 to use the Logan Log House grounds (for a maximum of 25 people) and a refundable performance bond (security deposit) of $300.00 in the form of separate checks made payable to the National Park Service. The performance bond is returned if all regulations are followed. When we receive the complete wedding application and fee, you will be notified within 10 days if your permit has been approved. At that time, you will be asked to sign a binding permit and submit your non-refundable fees and performance bond.
Particular attention must be paid to the logistics of the use of Logan Log House grounds.
