Why We Like This Place

  • Outdoor ceremonies are beautiful in the interior courtyard, where bright green landscaping, a sparkling fountain, and balcony seating for your guests make for an elegant setting.
  • For a literary reception, choose Bates Hall where you’ll be surrounded by books and dine at historic reading tables lit by iconic brass lamps—you know, the ones with the green glass shades.
  • Enhance your event by scheduling a special tour for your group, like a trip into the Rare Books and Manuscripts Department that houses Shakespeare’s First Folio from 1623!
