A Beautiful Venue in the Chicago Suburbs
A recognized & convenient historic wedding venue in the suburbs
In 1889, the mayor of Joliet envisioned a grand castle overlooking the rolling hills and the beautiful waterfront. He pictured a mansion with verandas and stone pillars. The grand entrance would be surrounded by tropical palms, shrubs and thousands of flowers. The gardens would include massive trees, extraordinary water fountains and an elegant gazebo surrounded by a sparkling creek side setting. As you enter, you would see extravagant chandeliers, exquisite large windows and romantic floor length mirrors. These details make for a truly wonderful and unique destination where he could hear the birds singing as he enjoyed the sunsets.
Today, The Haley Mansion serves as a beautiful special events site, serving weddings, banquets, corporate events and receptions. It is the most recognized and convenient historic wedding venue in the Southwest suburbs and all of Chicagoland.
