Cushioned benches seat up to 300 people. The Meeting Room opens onto the east terrace and gardens. Food and drink are not permitted in this space.  The Meeting Room is available throughout the renovation.

Assembly Room
The Assembly Room will be available for bookings beginning in mid-July 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 110 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.

Featuring a vaulted ceiling and original chestnut plank floors, French windows and doors will open onto a new circulation space, brick terrace and gardens. Your rental includes a kitchenette and a small sitting area that can be used flexibily as a break-out space for meetings or by caterers for staging and serving.  

Decatur Place Room
This 585 square foot meeting room has flexible space for an office retreat, meeting, film-screening or workshop. It seats 25 to 40 in a variety of configurations.

Decatur Room 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.  
Parlor
Post renovation, the parlor and library will be combined into one space with pocket doors opening to a hallway that leads to the new glass lobby overlooking west 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.
