The open-air pavilion features picturesque river views and can accommodate up to 175 seated guests in total.

Having hosted numerous notable guests over the years, including Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, it is now featured on the National Register of Historic Places.

Wonderful Wedding Venue

The Burroughs Home & Gardens was the perfect venue for our intimate wedding reception. The staff, particularly Melissa, communicated effectively from the tour of the venue, to contract signing, details leading up to the big day, and carrying out our plan the day of. Melissa went above and beyond to answer all of our questions. Thanks to the Burroughs Home, our reception was stress free and enjoyable for all. I highly recommend this venue for all of your wedding and event needs.

SoEventful

Amazing catering and venue company! Our wedding day had the worst rain forecast of the winter season! And the staff accommodated and implemented all the precautions to keep our guests safe. Everyone was very nice and attentive to our guests, and made our day very magical. The food quality was exceptional! Thank you Jeremy and Jessica for making our day very very special! We could not be happier with the outcome.
