Engagements and Weddings


Your History Begins Here…

At the Hegeler Carus Mansion, the grandeur of a bygone era creates the perfect backdrop for your ceremony.

Our authentic Victorian setting provides a unique and historic atmosphere for both your wedding ceremony and reception. The Hegeler Carus Mansion, a National Historic Landmark, is virtually unaltered since it’s completion in 1876.  The Mansion is an excellent example of artistic achievement in architecture and interior design and its the most complete and unaltered version of the decadent hand carved woodwork, and murals designed by August Fiedler.

A pebble stone path leads from the Mansion, through the gardens, to the Gazebo and west lawn.

The mansion hosts only one event at a time.  This truly gives your guests the feeling of privacy and creating your own signature event for the day.

Minimums may vary with the season or time of day you wish to host your event.  We can accommodate small intimate gatherings or large lavish events.  Please call Kelly Klobucher, Executive Director at (815)224-5891 to begin planning your historic wedding!
