About Us

The Haley Mansion, standing three and one half stories, with massive front and back porches, is stately and impressive. Built in 1889, the Mansion is a massive limestone structure and all of the woodwork is original Oak, Cherry and Mahogany. Inside you will be surrounded by stained glass windows, intricate friezes, ornate adornments and six fireplaces.

Today, Haley Mansion is available for weddings and special events offering superb cuisine. Whether it be an hors d'oeuvre reception, a luncheon, plated dinner or buffet, our custom caterer will accommodate all of your unique needs.

Haley Mansion hosts only your event and you have access to the entire facility and grounds, providing you and your guests with a feeling of privacy and intimacy. The lavish conservatory and ballroom accommodates 450 guests for plated service and as many as 600 guests for a cocktail reception.

Decorated with crystal chandeliers, starry sky accent lighting, sheer billowing fabric lining and high gloss tile floor, the Patrick C. Haley Mansion offers the most sophisticated event venue in the Chicagoland area.

Standard to the Mansion, guest tables are dressed with floor length, ivory damask linens and napkins, and dinners are served on our beautiful gold and platinum band china with charger plates, oversized stemware and flutes. Silver service is also standard at the Mansion, adding a rich elegance to our superior food presentations.

Ceremonies are special at the Patrick C. Haley Mansion. The lovely outdoor ceremony setting provides a picturesque ambiance of unmistakable charm. Lush Victorian Gardens are complemented by a pergola nestled between two trickling waterfalls, pagoda and arbor structures, two ponds, massive pines and thousands of annuals and perennials.

Adjacent to the ballroom, surrounded by floor length windows, the Mansion's unique Conservatory is the perfect backdrop for an indoor ceremony and provides ample space for dancing the night away under its starry skylight.

Events are truly special at the Patrick C. Haley Mansion. We create the aura and ambiance of an era gone by. Whatever the occasion, you'll want to select the Patrick C. Haley Mansion for a truly memorable event.
