  • We are so happy with the way our wedding at the Burroughs Home turned out. It is an absolutely beautiful home, with such a peaceful outdoor space too. The location downtown was perfect for us, with convenient parking offered. We booked the house and grounds, which I really recommend because getting ready in the house was such a cool experience for my bridesmaids and me. We were worried it might rain on our day, so it was such a relief to have flexibility with outdoor spots and covered options. The large pavilion was sooo big and such a perfect option for these times when people are more comfortable gathering in open-air spaces. We were also always impressed with how friendly and helpful Lena was. We definitely recommend the Burroughs Home for all kinds of events!
