Our historic Ballroom is unique for its elaborate finishes including a parquet floor, fabric-paneled walls, and ceiling made of 1,104 panes of rose-colored etched glass.
The Ballroom re-opened in October 2005 after extensive renovations. It was originally constructed in 1929 to house Longwood’s pipe organ and serve as a venue for concerts, lectures, and dinners—and we continue this tradition today.
