A beautiful and unique setting for your special occasion
When it was still used as military quarters, this majestic and historic Italianate-style mansion was the second-largest residence in the federal government system — second only to the White House. The building is now available to rent for meetings, corporate outings, weddings and receptions, family reunions or any other special occasion.
