The Mansion at Glen Magna Farms, set on an estate of eleven acres, has been described “as near to heaven as one can be in this world.” Located less than one mile from Routes 1 and 95.

Glen Magna Farms is an ideal location for weddings, private parties, corporate meetings, photo shoots and other special events.

The award-winning landscape includes formal gardens massed with colorful perennials, annuals, shrubbery and an arboretum. The Old Fashioned Garden is anchored by a reproduction of the original Gazebo designed by Francis Peabody in 1840. A wisteria-covered pergola transports guests towards the Derby Summer House, a National Historic Landmark, and into the Rose Garden which blooms in early summer with hundreds of heirloom roses. Classical statuary, fountains, sweeping lawns and winding pathways further enhance the exquisitely restored and manicured grounds.

The main rooms of the Colonial Revival Mansion include a foyer, drawing room, parlor, library and a spacious dining room. Changing rooms for bridal parties or for break-out sessions are on the second floor. A covered veranda along the entire south side of the Mansion overlooks the main lawn and gardens. Tenting for larger outdoor functions is available.
