My niece had her wedding reception here - what a lovely venue! The grounds were beautiful for pictures and the facilities were just perfect for the size of her wedding.

It is located in a lovely park with historical out buildings and many pieces of art. The inside is small, but has a very interesting clock exhibit and decoy exhibit. If you are in the area and have an hour or two...worth a stop.
