The Eisenhower House is a wedding venue located at Fort Adams State Park in Newport, Rhode Island. Originally built in 1873, it was the Summer White House for President Eisenhower during his administration. Today, it remains an elegant property with hilltop views of Narragansett Bay and Newport Harbor.
Facilities and Capacity
The Eisenhower House features beautifully designed rooms and an outdoor area that both offer a scenic backdrop for ceremonies and receptions. Couples are invited to celebrate their engagement party, wedding shower, and rehearsal dinner at the venue as well. To relax and prepare for their festivities, the happy couple is welcome to utilize the venue’s separate get-ready rooms. For an elegant reception, newlyweds and their loved ones can dine and dance in the mansion’s bright interior spaces. The building’s wrap-around porch allows guests to enjoy the open air and take in views of the nearby bay. For outdoor ceremonies, the lawn can be set up with chairs and floral arrangements, and a tent can be added to continue the celebration outside into the evening. Whether you’re enjoying a clambake during the summer or staying warm by the fireplaces in the winter, this venue sets the stage for long-lasting memories. With both indoor and outdoor spaces, the property can accommodate up to 1,000 people.
