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.
