San Francisco Theological Seminary




The unique venue is characterized by two castles dedicated in 1892, both with historic stone architecture. Located in San Anselmo, the property is tucked behind the trees in a secret garden-like setting. The Montgomery Chapel features a jewel-box setting with a domed ceiling high overhead and light that glimmers through the Tiffany-style stained glass. Stone archways, columns, and an oversized turquoise castle-style door add subtle accents. Geneva Hall and Terrace provide striking views of the Bay Area with rolling green hills and Mt. Tamalpais in the distance. Stewart Chapel, with an active bell tower, is another option atop a long staircase with a Steinway piano and pipe organ. Natural light flows through the building offering an air of warmth. Overnight lodging also available.
