A Beautiful Venue in the Chicago Suburbs

A recognized & convenient historic wedding venue in the suburbs

In 1889, the mayor of Joliet envisioned a grand castle overlooking the rolling hills and the beautiful waterfront. For one thing, he pictured a mansion with verandas, stone pillars, and a grand entrance surrounded by tropical palms, shrubs, and thousands of flowers. In his vision, the gardens would include massive trees and extraordinary water fountains. Plus, an elegant gazebo surrounded by a sparkling creekside setting would be the focal point.

As you enter, you would see extravagant chandeliers, exquisite large windows, and romantic, floor-length mirrors. For him, these details made for a truly wonderful and unique destination where he could hear the birds sing as he enjoyed the sunsets.

Today, The Haley Mansion is a beautiful special event space, serving weddings, banquets, corporate events, and receptions. For that reason, it is the most recognized and convenient historic venue in the Southwest suburbs and all of Chicagoland.

The Haley Mansion Grounds & Gardens

At The Haley Mansion, gardens feature waterfalls and ponds. Each water feature is surrounded by towering pines and thousands of roses, lilies, and hostas. Additionally, the venue grounds offer fabulous photo opportunities for your special day. Plus, the outdoor pergola is a beautiful, elevated structure perfect for your outdoor ceremony.

Furthermore, your guests will enjoy the serenity of a bygone era, while they are being served drinks on the paved patio.
