Event Rentals

Ross Mansion and Plantation offers a classic and unique venue for your wedding, party, business meeting, or special occasion.  Exchange vows in front of an ornate Italian style mansion and then dance the night away with your wedding guests under a tent on the plantation grounds. Enjoy hosting your party or dinner in a house built and lived in by the youngest and only local Delaware governor. Hold your business retreat in the house and stroll among the serene landscape during breaks. Grab your lunch and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere at a picnic table on the grounds.  Any occasion held at the Historic Ross Mansion and Plantation will be long remembered.
