Power Petals is a flower farm nestled in the woods and pasture lands of Southern Statesville, NC. We create experiences on and off the farm offering on-site reservations, market bouquets, specialty designs and host floral design workshops. Our flowers come with their own story of how they were grown, nurtured and their ancient language of flowers meaning. Each bouquet includes a keepsake with the meaning of each flower. Discover the meaning of each bloom. Every stem has a message, every collection a story.
It started with a desire to save the dilapidated cotton gin building from scrap metal salvage. Owner Tommy Satterwhite, a history lover and hobbyist, is from Warrenton and has memories of the building and even playing in the piles of cottonseed as a child. Anne Satterwhite is an avid gardener, crafter, and DIY-er. Together, in their retirement, they have worked to save and renovate this unique space. In 2020, their son Scott Satterwhite, who has a background in the hospitality business, got involved to launch The Old Cotton Gin as a welcoming and inclusive wedding/event venue for couples and organizations. They have also renovated an early 20th-century octagonal barn on the property and an adjacent historical home which can be included as lodging for an elopement or rented separately via Airbnb.
With 53 guest rooms, seasonal food and beverage highlighting locally grown ingredients, and mid-century design by acclaimed firm Commune, The Durham Hotel is the perfect backdrop for wedding events, dining, and lodging for family and friends.
