Looking for an elegant location for your baby shower? What about a rustic and historic space for a small wedding? The 1890 House Museum is pleased to offer several different options for your next event.



The backyard is our largest outdoor space. It includes a small fountain and small fish pond. The yard can accommodate up to 100 guests for a standing reception or 80 for a seated function.


Carriage House

The Carriage House is a rustic style venue. The historic barn is a lovely place to host events with a semi-indoor feel. Because this is an unheated location the space is only available between April and September (weather permitting). The Carriage House can accommodate up to 80 seated guests or 100 standing.



The interior of the 1890 House Museum is available for receptions of up to 80 standing guests or 50 seated and is available outside of regular museum hours.


Our spaces can be used for graduation parties, birthday parties, business functions, family reunions, baby/bridal showers, meetings, holiday celebrations, and weddings. The museum is a beautiful setting in any season and we are happy to work with you to customize your perfect event.
