Donaldson Brown isn’t just a place for elegant weddings and uncomplicated business meetings, it’s an event destination. There are many reasons to consider why you should hold your next gathering at Donaldson Brown. With a history of hosting unique events, we offer guests the ability to create their own special memories on our historic estate with our supportive staff.
Additionally, Donaldson Brown offers our own special events throughout the year, many of which are open to the public. Holiday brunches, luncheons, and dinners often include a scenic tour of the estate with interesting historical “tidbits” that present a unique opportunity to step back in time and relax along the Susquehanna River. And to top it all off, our in-house chef prepares homemade buffets that keep guests coming back time after time.
Whether you’re planning an anniversary party, retirement celebration, birthday gathering, shower, or family reunion, Donaldson Brown provides an elegant and unique setting for your special event. For crowds small or large, we offer you the opportunity to let our home be your home for the day, night, or weekend.
Fees are dependent upon your unique event requests and will be determined after discussions with Donaldson Brown staff.
