About The Maxwell House

Historic Event Venue - built for making memories.

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!

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.
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.

Let me start this by saying, our wedding would not have been as incredible as it was, were it not for the Maxwell House and their incredible staff. Lori, Lisa and Kevin did there very best to make sure every detail of our day was attended to. They worked with our budget, they were easy to communicate with through the preparation process and even stepped in to help us problem solve at the last minute - above and beyond what we could have imagined and hoped for. On the day of, their staff was quietly helpful, making sure any needs were met without disrupting guests. Everyone commented on what a special space the Maxwell House is and how personal our big day felt. We cannot recommend this venue enough. Thank you Maxwell House, Lori, Lisa and Kevin for making our day the most memorable of our lives. -Mark and Kyle
