Celebration of Life


The Van Dusen Mansion provides a breathtaking backdrop for elegant celebrations to remember your loved one. Our elite staff works with you to take the organizational stress of you and your family during this difficult time, while also remaining sensitive to budget questions and concerns.


Our venue was built it 1892 and is warmly lit with history. The Van Dusen Mansion evokes a Richardson Romanesque style, complemented by spires and turrets of French Renaissance. It is a stone mason's masterpiece, made entirely of hand-carved pink Sioux Quartzite. When guests enter through the porte cochere, they will be immersed in a lavish interior world adorned with rich woodwork, Persian rugs, stained glass windows and glistening chandeliers.
