History

Originally a farmhouse situated on a 100-acre farm, Marymount Event Center was purchased in 1919 by the Sisters of St. Dominic and transformed into Marymount Military Academy in 1923. Upon its opening, only 30 boys attended the academy, with this number reaching 120 as the years progressed. The school thrived until 1975 when the upkeep became too much for the sisters. The property was sold to Harold LeMay in the 1980s, who promised to preserve the property and maintain it under his ownership. Harold used the space to house his growing collection of classic cars and Americana memorabilia. Today, Marymount Event Center operates as a not-for-profit organization, hosting events and tours to preserve and maintain the memorabilia within the property as a gift for generations to come.

    We adored Marymount for our wedding. The chapel is beautiful and the staff is more accommodating than I could have asked. I highly recommend Marymount to anyone looking for a wedding venue.

    Trudy was a great help very patient and knowledgeable in helping me plan our wedding. The grounds are absolutely beautiful! Everyone was courteous, helpful and flexible in helping me pull off a beautiful day! Trudy helped me snag my "soon to be's" dream car, as a surprise, to drive him into our outdoor ceremony. We were able to dress up the tables and chairs the evening before, allowing me to be pampered and relaxed the morning of. Tara helped us pull off timing of cars and music and ensured the entire evening went well.
    The entire crew came out to assist with clean up and were so friendly! Absolutely LOVE this venue and can not wait for another visit!
