History

This historic mansion was built in 1888 on a tract of land originally known as Dulaney’s Lot, which has a rich history tracing back to 1724. The land was granted to General Otho Williams in the 1780s. Upon it, he built the Ceresville grist mill, the original Mansion house, and a sawmill. Edward Shriner, who bought the property from Williams in 1816, built the Ceresville Mansion in 1888 as a wedding anniversary gift to his wife.

    Wonderful Venue

    My husband and I had our ceremony and reception at Ceresville Mansion. We had an amazing experience from the time of inquiry until the very end of our wedding. They were very patient as I had to make a lot of changes throughout the process due to the highs and lows of the pandemic. Our wedding planner, Kate, was on top of helping us through the planning process. Haley was our day of coordinator who helped me so much on our wedding day! I was a nervous wreck but she was able to guide me through everything. I am so happy we choose Ceresville Mansion as the venue to celebrate the happiest day of my life.

    Amazing Wedding Venue

    Ceresville Mansion is everything you could want in a venue! There are so many small details that go into planning a wedding, and the staff there are experts. The planning services and day of coordination add so much value- Juli and Haley made sure every part of our day went smoothly. Ceresville accommodated all of our guests with food allergies and everyone said it was the best food they ever had at a wedding! We had our ceremony and cocktail hour outdoors, and our reception indoors, and the transition was seamless. The staff was great with helping us set up and clean up. Our guests had an amazing time!!
