Located on 300-acres of beautiful farmland and situated around 14 historic buildings from across Mahaska County, Bradbury Hall is a great space to host your upcoming event. We provide a catering kitchen (equipped to cool and heat prepared foods, but not available for cooking raw food), a stage, PA system, 38-8' rectangular tables, and 400 folding chairs. You have complete control of your decorating scheme and the vendors you select.
For single day rentals, you may pick up the key and get into the building at 7:00 a.m. and have access to Bradbury Hall until midnight.
Standard wedding rental is 2 days. Contract period is from noon the day before the event, the entire day of the event, until noon the day after the event.
(i.e. For a Saturday evening reception, contract holders get the key at noon on Friday and return the key at noon on Sunday.)
If you would like to serve any kind of alcohol, there is an additional $200 fee and we require a certificate of liability from your insurance company covering the day of the event with a minimal coverage of $1,000,000.
If you wish to use the grounds of our site (as in, having the historic buildings open for guests to visit or to take pictures INSIDE any of the buildings), there is an additional $200 fee. If you choose to take pictures just at the exteriors of the buildings, there is no fee. We just ask you properly cite our organization's name with your images.
