The Old Homestead was renovated in 1953 and operated as a meeting place for community events. The integrity of this extraordinary home has been lovingly preserved through the years and is currently maintained and operated by the Carquinez Women’s Club.
The Old Homestead is located in the city of Crocket near the Carquinez Strait, in the intersection of the San Pablo Bay, Grizzly Bay and Suisun Bay. This location is located within a block of the Crockett Historical Museum, Rithet Park and Alexander Park.

My husband and I had our milestone birthdays last weekend at The Old Homestead. We love that the place is part of local history and that it is run by a local club (Carquinez Women's Club). Keri is the Party Coordinator and she is very responsive and flexible. Since this is run by a small group and is a fairly new party venue, keep in mind that they are working their way through their processes (i.e. payment options, etc.). This can be good (they don't have all the extra fees as an established venue) or bad (previously they did not take electronic payments but now they are working with Venmo and others). Maureen manages the set up; she's a hoot and totally cares about you having the best party!Sent on 08/04/2018
Overall, excellent and beautiful outdoor/indoor venue well worth the price!!! EVERY guest of mine commented on the venue and hinted to also using it for upcoming parties!

The Old Homestead is a wonderful, wonderful venue. The house is classic and beautiful but feels totally updated and comfortable (none of the electrical/plumbing/ air conditioning issues I often see working in charming old spaces). The garden is lovely, the space is intimate, but most importantly, the team at the Old Homestead is phenomenal. Keri, Micheal, and Maureen were fantastic to work with, really going above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. I can't recommend The Old Homestead Highly Enough!Sent on 07/24/2018
