    The Monastery Event Center

    "Romantic ruins have been revived. In a dramatic endeavor, Towne Properties (Neil Bortz '54, HBS '60) and Receptions Event Centers have converged to revitalize The Monastery at St. Paul Place in Mount Adams. The Monastery opened in May 2016 as a premiere venue for special events and weddings. After two years of planning, the historic property’s rejuvenation was guided by careful reverence for this iconic building which is over 100 years old. Mount Adams is a treasure chest of history. The Monastery rests atop that treasure as a royal jewel. Once forgotten, it has now been re-set in the crown of the Queen City."

The festivities will occur regardless of atmospheric conditions.  Free parking next to the Monastery.
