And Logistics Like:
Jefferson Street Mansion stands proud as part of Historic Benicia's Arsenal as it was once the Executive Officer's Quarters. Built in 1861, the East Coast architects found inspiration in French military heroes such as Napolean and American Revolution General Lafayette and incorporated many elements of the Empire style of design. Once the US Military of the Arsenal was decommissioned in 1960, the mansion moved into private ownership. In 1998, it was purchased by its current owner and restored to its former glory, specifically to be a beautiful setting for special events.
Jefferson Street Mansion has a quiet, secluded feel yet is easily reachable from Napa, Solano, and Contra Costa Counties. This picturesque venue attracts couples wanting a destination wedding as well as couples from Vallejo, Concord, Richmond, San Rafael, San Francisco, Oakland, Alameda, San Leandro, Walnut Creek, Pleasant Hill, Fairfield, Napa, Sonoma, and Santa Rosa.

Beautiful venue, easy planning!
The venue was the perfect mix of elegant and beautiful while still being low key and natural, and it was exactly what we were looking for.
The flow of the event was great, with ceremony and reception, and all in all we had an amazing time, and LOVE the photos we got from this venue.
Kristen was our main point of contact, and she was really flexible with us and made the planning process so much easier than if we didn't have her.
Overall, highly recommend the venue.Sent on 10/16/2019

The staff of Jefferson Street Mansion handled our wedding with as much care and attention to detail as if it had been their own wedding (especially helpful to my husband and I, who needed support in considering all possible details at this level). Our wedding and reception were magical and two months later, friends and family still go out of their way to agree. Thank you!Sent on 12/23/2019
