Redding House back in business in downtown Biloxi

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - A historic Biloxi venue, The Redding House, is once again welcoming guests thanks to a meticulous restoration.

The Colonial Revival style home was built in 1908 by Charles Redding. In 1984, the house was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The current owner, Dr. Robert Stroble, purchased the property in 2005. At a time when Biloxi had already lost so much history to Hurricane Katrina, this home was brought back to life. Today, the newly refurbished Redding House is a fully functioning event venue available for private parties, weddings and corporate events.

"This venue has it all," said Julie Umbdenstock, one of the proprietors. "We can accommodate up to 200 guests, have a fully equipped kitchen for onsite catering, and are centrally located in downtown Biloxi."

Wednesday, Umbdenstock, Dr. Stroble and another proprietor, Suzanne Guice, will host a ceremony to officially reopen the Redding House.

"This endeavor has always been something I have dreamed about," said Guice, "Preserving The Redding House's unique history with its rich architectural details makes this venture even more rewarding."
