The Bonneville House, which was built in 1868, has a lot of rich history. This house was first occupied by David McKibben and his family for 10 years before it sold to Mrs. Sue Neis Bonneville. Mrs. Sue was a widow to General Benjamin Louis Eulalie de Bonneville, who was a French-born officer in the US army. General Bonneville was recognized for his expeditions to the Oregon Country and the Great Basin, and for exploring portions of the Oregon Trail. He then became famous for his explorations. After General Bonneville passed in 1878, his wife purchased the home to preserve the memories, traditions, and records of her husband. Mrs. Bonneville lived in the home until she passed in 1910. In 1962, Melanie Holt Speer purchased the old house to renovate and restore it. Five years later, a group of women placed this house in a foundation and formed the Bonneville House Association.

The Perfect Venue without the stress
I just cannot say enough good things about this venue. From the moment we took a tour we knew it was the perfect venue for us. They provided everything we needed for our wedding and reception. Amy & her staff took such great care of us that we truly had nothing to worry about. You could really tell that they loved their jobs and loved this beautiful historic mansion, and that made such a difference.Sent on 02/05/2019
If you are shopping around for a wedding venue, I would suggest starting here first! Especially if you are on a budget, they were by far the most responsibly priced venue around!
