Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • A unique arts club housed in the former residence of President James Monroe, this splendid home has been hosting memorable events for over 200 years—the newly-elected Monroe even held his inaugural celebration in the homes upper parlors!
  • There's a wonderful brick courtyard garden just right for intimate ceremonies and open-air receptions. It features quaint statuary and lush seasonal plantings, and can be tented in the event of uncooperative weather.
  • Inside the gracious mansion itself, you'll find fantastic period furnishings, an inviting library, and parlors whose walls are hung with impressive artwork. In-house catering and event coordination streamline your planning and help ensure a stress-free day.
