Noriega House’s history begins in 1872 when Faustino Mier emigrated from Spain. He settled in California with his uncle, taking the surname Noriega. In the following years, Faustino became a businessman and married his wife, Louisa. In 1900, they built their home in Bakersfield and used the property as a lodge for fellow Basque immigrants. Now a classic estate for events, the manor retains its 20th-century charm.

The house itself is beautiful, inside the house is perfect for small, intimate weddings. i would say one of the issues i had with that was the fact that you have to go up stairs for the inside ceremony room, and a few of our guests had a really hard time going up the stairs, also i had wanted to have the ceremony inside, but the reception outside, i still had to pay as if i was having the ceremony/reception outside which was a lot more money.. that didn't make sense to me.Sent on 02/22/2011
