The Huntington Historical Society offers two of its historic properties to rent for your important affairs. They are ideal for Baby/Bridal Showers, Birthdays, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, Weddings, Engagement Parties, Rehearsal Dinners, Retirement Parties, Anniversaries, Lectures and the like.
For smaller affairs, up to 50 people, we rent the Conklin Barn year round. The barn is climate controlled so it is comfortable in any season. It has a handicapped accessible rest room and it comes with all necessary tables and chairs. You would arrange for your own food preparation, off site.
For larger affairs, up to 200+ people, we rent the Kissam lawn which is appropriate for affairs May through October. The property comes with a fully equipped kitchen. By special arrangement, the Dr. Daniel W. Kissam House Museum can be opened for continuous tours. The Society Evening of Wine Under the Stars is held there each year, in Mid September, and has become our most successful event.
The Society has contacts with all necessary vendors and can help to make your planning as easy as possible. Caterers, Tents (We use an 80 foot by 40 foot tent plus other large tents for the Wine Tasting), Tables, Chairs, Linens, Porta Potties with running water, Photographers, Music Groups, Insurance and Dumpsters. Also, the Society can help with obtaining permits from the Health Department and Fire Marshal. These ensure that you will have a perfectly safe affair.
