Meeting Room
Our largest space, this room is a simple and elegant location for a wedding, concert, lecture, film screening, or other event that brings many people together. It has cushioned bench seating for up to 300 people. The Meeting Room opens onto the east terrace front garden. Food and drink are not permitted in this space.

Assembly Room
The Assembly Room will be available for bookings beginning in mid-June after a complete renovation featuring coffered ceilings, contemporary lighting and sustainable cork floors.

Three full-height doors will open onto a new patio, courtyard and gardens. Two adjacent rooms offer flexibility as break out spaces. Enjoy access to a large serving kitchen for catering service or for limited food preparation.

Perfect for celebrations, office retreats, dinners and receptions, the Assembly Room will accommodate as many as 96 people for a seated dinner.  Standing receptions will allow larger crowds.  

Quaker House Living Room

Quaker House Living Room
Built in the 1930's, historic Quaker House was formerly an elegant townhome to diplomats. New glass corridors on the courtyard side will connect it to the Meeting House, elevator and the rest of the campus. It is ideal for your workshop, meeting, or board retreat. Capacity is about 40.

It features a vaulted ceiling and French windows and doors that will open onto a new patio and terrace with gardens. Your rental includes access to a small break-out space, a kitchenette, and two rest rooms.

Decatur Place Room
This 585 square foot meeting room has plenty of room for an office retreat, meeting, or workshop. It seats up to 30 in a variety of configurations.

This popular, flexible space has immediate access to our east gardens and the bluestone terrace above. Easy setup for delivery of breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Terrace Room
Brightly lit with windows on three sides, this space is currently set up with a conference table that seats 8-12. It will be convertible for multiple uses post-renovation. A bridal salon?  This room opens directly onto the east terrace and gardens. Private, quiet, close to restrooms. 
Parlor
Post renovation, the parlor and library will be combined into one space with pocket doors opening onto a hallway that leads to the new glass lobby overlooking campus gardens. While the parlor side of the room will will welcome cozy or informal gatherings on comfortable antiques and reproductions, the library side will continue to host meetings around a classic oak table that comfortably seats six with additional seating around.  
Library
This space includes a large oak table and chairs seating six to eight. South- and west-facing windows offer great natural light for most of the day.  
Gardens
Exterior spaces around our buildings are rooms in and of themselves.  A natural landscape strategy for the east terrace and garden and both the upper and lower west gardens respect historic plans and poetic inspiration.  Spaces are generally associated with use of particular rooms for parties, weddings and meetings.
