The Carraway-Davie House & Conference Center is an events center located at 4465 Old Overton Road near Liberty Park.

The Carraway-Davie House contains 28 rooms and 10,025 square feet of living space, including a living room, study, card room, den, kitchen, meeting room, game room, and garden room. There are 6 bedrooms each with their own bath. Two of these bedrooms, the Bride's Room, and the Groom's Room, have marble fireplaces, sitting areas, and French doors that open onto their own terraces. Originally constructed in 1972 as the residence of Birmingham neurosurgeon Clayton Davie, the house features several uniquely-Birmingham asthetics, including an arched doorway, a fireplace, wrought iron and marble salvaged from the Terminal Station, a brass and crystal chandelier from the Temple Theatre, a mirror from the original Tutwiler Hotel, and exterior brick from the Birmingham Paper Company building.

Davie donated the house to Carraway Hospital in 1979 to serve as a location for hosting events ranging from corporate conferences, weddings, Christmas parties and other social events. The complex was sold to the owners of Corretti Catering in 2002 who used the commercial kitchen for catering and also handled booking events at the venue. In 2014 the center was sold to Cahaba Park Church and Corretti Catering moved to the Florentine Building in downtown Birmingham.
