A beautiful historical location to have a wedding
We loved having our wedding at Willamette Heritage Center. It is such a charming historical location. Everyone we worked with was very nice and flexible with us, and the grounds were very scenic for the photography.Sent on 08/07/2019

Affordable and accommodating
The Willamette Heritage Center was a beautiful, affordable venue. I liked that they allow you to use whichever vendors you choose. (I had a couple friends do the catering which is how we saved money.) The venue coordinator and grounds keepers were so helpful and supportive.Sent on 07/09/2019

Both the Dye House and the Spinning Room are two locations in the Salem area that I love taking wedding cakes to. The backdrops are historical and eyecatching, and the Mission Mill staff is a joy to work with. They work really hard to make sure the venue is perfect for its clients.
