The beginning

Ceresville Mansion was completed in 1888 over an 8 year period, remaining in the Shriner family until the early 1930’s. The Mansion had always been a private residence until the current owners transformed the existing house into its current use as a setting for weddings, banquets, business events, picnics, and private parties. The venue opened in December of 1989 and has been serving the DMV ever since.

About the mansion

The present four story Mansion house with improvements contains 9,000 square feet of finished space. The twin parlors, elegant fireplaces, and traditional architectural elements are all in their original condition.

Retaining the original elegance and beauty of the Mansion is the foremost concern of the current owners. The Mansion has become a Frederick County institution and thousands of guests have fond memories of their experiences at the Ceresville Mansion.
