    Stunning venue

    We had our wedding at Rollins Mansion and it was amazing! There are so many options at the venue to meet any needs. The event coordinator is very flexible and knowledgeable. Our guests could not stop complimenting the venue and all of the details. The outside area was also very nice with lovely flowers for the fall season! We were very happy we chose Rollins Mansion for our wedding!

    Stunning, Unique Venue

    Rollins is an absolutely stunning venue! Our guests loved it and raved about it for weeks after our event. Since there are so many different spaces within the mansion, it is really perfect for customizing your event in whatever way you'd like it to flow. They are so accommodating in helping make your day as special as you want it to be. They were on top of their stuff and so flexible to work with!

    Add a touch of elegance and timeless beauty to your memories

    I have had the pleasure to photograph several weddings at this one of a kind location. The added charm, elegance and beauty throughout will make your photos shine. People will think you went thousands of miles away for such photos, but you can have them right here in the midwest. The staff is always on top of things and helping. Easy access from main roads and plenty of parking. The evening have an amazing view of the downtown skyline from the balcony. Always my first choice if clients asks me for a venue.
