About Newell Pioneer Village
Currently taking appointments for 2019/2020 reservations.
On a hillside west of the entrance to Champoeg State Park, above the banks of the Willamette River, stands the home of Robert Newell. Built in 1852, the house sits on just under three acres and is surrounded by gardens and farm lands. Our gardens consist of heritage roses, perennial beds, a large lawn with mature trees and a small orchard. Also included in the Newell Pioneer Village is the Pioneer Mothers Memorial Cabin and an 1850's one room school and jail. The grounds of the Village makes a charming backdrop for weddings, providing a wonderful step back in time.
The Newell Pioneer Village has several unique collections of Oregon history artifacts, creating a wonderful atmosphere for your guests. Our collection includes the Oregon Inaugural Ball Gown Collection, with the earliest gown dating back to 1849. Newell House has an extensive collection of quilts, needlework, and other piece goods dating back to the 1700's. There are also many carding, spinning, and weaving tools on display from many original pioneer families. The museum is fortunate to have a significant collection of early basket, bead, and leather work from many northwest Indian tribes, as well as many items once owned by the last Indian Princess of Coos Bay.
The Newell Pioneer Village offers you the flexibility to create the wedding package that fits your specific wedding requests and needs, creating an event to remember for a lifetime!
