Share a bit of history with the guests of your distinctive wedding, corporate occasion or special celebration at The Ribault Club – a secluded setting on Fort George Island, in Jacksonville, Florida. Recently restored to its original grandeur, the 16,000-square-foot venue reflects the vision of its designer, renowned Swiss architect Maurice Fatio, as an elegant gathering place amidst fluted pilasters, arched doorways, wainscoting, paneled doors and custom woodwork. It’s scenic waterfront location echoes the style and elegance of the affluent guests who first came to the resort in 1928 and is still the perfect setting today.  


Now part of Fort George Island Cultural State Park, and the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, The Ribault Club exceptionally blends historic architecture and Florida’s natural coastal ambiance with 21st century modern conveniences, providing a memorable indoor or outdoor setting for any occasion. Giant oak trees frame the entrance to the clubhouse and blanket the grounds in an interplay of sun and shade. Whether celebrating a marriage, corporate achievement, or personal milestone, holding an event in an unforgettable setting like The Ribault Club creates a sophisticated and stylish celebration. There’s just no better venue for an event.
