We's Married Now.jpg

If you are looking for a unique setting in which to host your next meeting, family event, wedding, corporate retreat, reception or film shoot; Hammonds House Museum is what you have been looking for.  Our 19th century Eastlake Victorian house has character throughout as is evidenced n the architecture, furnishings and decorative art. Couple this sense of historical perspective with the art and culture of the African Diaspora and you have a venue that provides a "one of a kind" experience for guests to enjoy.  As a visual arts museum with five or more changing exhibitions a year, the ambiance, settings and surroundings are constantly changing to set a unique tone.
