About King Hooper Mansion

Elegant both inside and out, the King Hooper Mansion offers a unique rental option for your next occasion.

The King Hooper Mansion is located in scenic Marblehead, MA, a town renowned as the yachting capital of America and birthplace of the American Navy. Just 17 miles north of Boston, Marblehead is home to one of the most majestic and beautiful harbors on the eastern seaboard, and is known as an art and cultural center.

The King Hooper Mansion has a colorful history; it is where Federalists gathered in the early 1700’s. It was first built in 1728 and enlarged to its present size in 1745. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it is one of America’s outstanding architectural gems, situated in the heart of Marblehead’s historic district.

The Hooper Mansion is the home of the Marblehead Arts Association; the association has called this beautiful facility home since 1938. The six galleries in the Mansion include a graceful front parlor, a dining room, a small rear gallery, two second floor galleries and a third floor ballroom, which houses a Steinway Grand piano. Additionally, there are two kitchens and the original wine cellar, located on the lower level and opening onto the King Hooper Garden, which is meticulously maintained by the Cottage Gardeners of Marblehead.

The gallery rooms feature outstanding artwork, with new exhibits every six weeks. With art as your backdrop, the mansion creates a unique venue for weddings, formal or relaxed occasions and business meetings. You will have a member of our staff available on-site to assist you with your special event.

Please feel free to stop by for a tour of our facilities. We are open on Tuesday-Friday and Sunday, noon–5 pm, and Saturday, 10–5 pm.

For more specific information please see our Venue Rental page or to inquire about rates please contact the King Hooper Mansion at 781-631-2608 or email info@marbleheadarts.org.

    A beautiful, charming, and unique place to have a wedding. We couldn't have been happier, and Betsy was SO helpful throughout the planning process. Everyone commented on how special our venue was!

    I cannot say enough positive things about the King Hooper Mansion and Betsy! When we read about the mansion on wedding wire, we were attracted by the charm and history as the house, as well as the beauty of the setting, Marblehead. When we first visited the house, we absolutely fell in love with it and the town. The house itself is gorgeous, full of New England character. We loved that it has an interesting story (King Hooper was a loyalist, philanthropic candle-maker!) that we could tell to our guests
    We rented the whole house for our event. The ceremony was at Crocker Park, a small park overlooking the harbor, just a few minutes walk from the King Hooper. I can't express how beautiful the view was for the ceremony; our pictures are stunning. Next, we had a cocktail hour in the pretty gardens of the King Hooper, followed by dinner on the first floor and dancing in the upstairs ballroom. All of our guests commented on how beautiful and unique the venue was.
    Furthermore, Betsy was so helpful and communicative throughout the whole planning process. She immediately responded to emails and phone calls, and she was so good at communicating with all the vendors to coordinate and make sure everything ran smoothly on the day of the wedding. She made the whole planning process so easy and fun.
    I am so, so happy we had our special day at the King Hooper, and I'm only sad that the day is over. I wish we could do it all again because it was so much fun!
    ps. the price was VERY reasonable, unlike many venues! This meant we could spend more on other services, like getting a string quartet to play during the cocktail hour!

    This is a gorgeous gem in the heart of Marblehead's Old Town. I photographed an event there and it was a pleasure from start to finish. The back courtyard is perfection: scenic, comfortable- just lovely. And the rooms are beyond charming. I will be recommending this venue to all of my clients that need a special, perfect place. The staff there was accommodating, professional, and friendly. So impressed.
