Mark Twain Ballroom (For parties of  35-85 people)
An elegant dining experience, the Mark Twain Ballroom seats up to 90 guests and is perfect for parties of 20 or more. The Ballroom is decorated with intricate old-time chandeliers, paintings of famous guests such as Mark Twain and an example of the original wallpaper. The Ballroom was part of the original floor plan and has been used for special events since 1856. Author Mark Twain held readings and the ballroom has been host to Presidential Receptions for Ulysses Grant, Calvin Coolidge, and William Taft (who as also Chief Justice of the Supreme Court). Now you can host your event in this historic room, adding your name into the annals of history.

The Ballroom has its own wooden bar and a staging kitchen from which buffets and plated dinners are served for banquets. Originally used in 1856 by the “drovers” who drove herds of cattle up Highway 4 and bunked down on their bedrolls, today’s guests enjoy the history and tradition of this grand room.
