This 19th century country estate boasts a rich history and an exciting future. With painstaking care, Conroy Catering restored the mansion's interiors to reflect the Victorian splendor of the past. The newly-constructed conservatory opens to expansive cocktail terraces, a pergola for wedding ceremonies and thirteen acres of magnificent perennial gardens.

The Knowlton Mansion features two beautiful Ceremony Locations. Nestled amongst English boxwoods, outdoor ceremonies take place beneath the pergola. Alternately, an indoor ceremony can be accommodated on the upper level of our Conservatory, under the expansive glass skylights.
