The Avoca Museum




Built in 1901, the Avoca Museum emits timeless class, and is the perfect place for your elegant wedding. Avoca bears several of the customary elements of Queen Anne residence architecture signified by its prominent gables, wraparound porch, earth-toned paint scheme, asymmetry, and of course, the beautiful tower. Eclecticism was the order of the day during the period in which the house was built, and this stunning style will add so much to your gorgeous and timeless wedding photos. Pictures with your loved one on the porch and stairs will be magnificent, as well as in the Museum’s lovely colorful gardens. The Museum’s yard can be customized however you wish to create the rustic outdoor wedding of your dreams. The museum’s staff can erect huge tents, round or rectangular tables, and don’t forget about the dance floor (included with site rental). Share your first kiss as a married couple beneath the wooden altar or in front of the mansion. Enjoy all that the Avoca Museum has to offer for your magical wedding.
