Even though wedding season has passed, the holidays are upon us, and families will need a gorgeous space for parties and meetings. Historic Oakland’s manor offers three levels of entertaining space accommodating up to 180 guests. This historic venue has hosted corporate affairs, non-profit fundraisers, family reunions, baby blessings, memorial services, craft shows, and many other celebrations. If you have an event coming up and are looking for the perfect venue, look no further than Historic Oakland Manor.
The Main Ballroom
Our most elegant room, the Ballroom, can accommodate approximately 80 guests seated banquet style. This room is perfect for weddings or reception parties. If you are seating 80 guests for your event, any additional event set up, such as food and beverage stations, DJ, etc., must be located outside the Ballroom in the Foyer, Library, or Veranda. The Ballroom receives natural lighting from four glass doors leading to an enclosed Veranda – a perfect spot for cocktails, bar, or dessert. Using the Veranda brings your total guest seating capacity to over 100, and utilizing the foyer will add even more.
Our lovely covered Veranda can hold up to 32 guests seated at banquet tables or up to 50 for an intimate cocktail hour. The Veranda can be used for numerous situations, including a bar, food station, or DJ booth. It can be enclosed in case of rain or cold weather and offers a beautiful view of our wooded backyard. The Veranda is not heated or air-conditioned. When using the Veranda during the summer or winter, space heaters or air conditioners can be rented to make the space usable all year round. The Veranda is great for outdoor birthday parties or family gatherings.
The Magnolia Room
If you need a smaller indoor space for showers, receptions, or corporate parties, check out our Magnolia Room. Located on the upper level, this room can accommodate approximately 64 guests seated banquet style with room for a buffet. Five large windows provide dazzling natural light. A recessed screen and ceiling-mounted projector also add to the amenities.
Back Patio Tent
Summer might be over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start planning your next summer party right now. During the warm months, we are happy to offer a Tent Package option that includes the rental of a beautifully appointed tent and the house that affords you additional event space, dressing areas, restrooms, and a kitchen. The tent is erected on our back patio, accommodating larger events. The tent can hold up to 180 guests with a dance floor. When renting the tent, tables and chairs for up to 150 guests are included in the rental price. If your guest count exceeds 150, ceremony or reception chairs must be rented through our exclusive tent vendor.
