A grand mansion built in the 1920s as a private summer residence to the Maxwell family, the Maxwell House serves as a historic site to the area!
The Maxwell family chose noted architects Marston and Maybury to design their home in the elegant Mediterranean Italianate style, with tile roofing, stucco walls, a strong Palladian entrance and elaborate detailing. The soaring entry hall and decoratively painted ceiling panels suggest immediately that other grand spaces will open to you. Event rentals include access to a library meeting room, complete with a dark wood table and fireplace, main ballroom with windows facing a rose garden, a grand staircase and entryway, bold dining room fit for the era and perfect for meetings, and the open-air back patio! Weddings also include dressing suites!
Weddings and Weekend Events are a flat rate of $6,500, regardless of guest count, date, or season. Please see our pricing PDF for details.

Maxwell House is located on Grand Ave in Pasadena. The area is historic and beautiful and also conveniently located near the Colorado Bridge. Reid and his team are amazing and they were soooo helpful with setting up the venue. Maxwell House allows you to hire an insured caterer and bartender so you’re not as restricted by catering requirements that other venue require. The venue is beautiful & spacious. It easily accommodated our 78 people + vendors. I highly recommend this venue.Sent on 01/14/2019

We had guests coming up to us throughout the evening of our wedding giving compliments to this venue. I’m so glad that I found the Maxwell House. It was a beautiful venue that supports a good cause! What more could you want? It made my heart smile knowing that my money was going to The Western Justice Center rather than just some big hotel chain.Sent on 01/14/2019
Reid was amazing and super quick to respond to every email I sent. We had the wedding ceremony in the foyer (I was able to have an amazing grand entrance because of this), dinner in the living room, bar in the library, buffet in the dining room, and dance floor in the back of the foyer. This provided a lot of space for people to dance, mingle, and have a great time. My wedding was a full week ago, but I’m still getting calls and texts letting me know that it was one of the best weddings they’ve ever been to.
Thank you, Maxwell House, for such a memorable day and evening.
