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

I had a wonderful experience with Mission Mill! Laura is very flexible and easy to get a hold of. I got married on the grounds and had our reception in the Dye room. Very nice for smaller weddings. Everyone was very helpful and made it a positive experience!Sent on 07/18/2011

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.
