The Bunk House

This newly renovated building had been used as the gardener's quarters for those who were employed by the owners of the Mansion. It has an air of history and memories for those who worked tirelessly for the Gallaher’s. It has a gorgeous, functioning stone fireplace that is air-conditioned and is a perfect venue for hosting intimate special events.

The Pavilion

This Pavilion is fashioned after the Main Pavilion at the park, just a smaller version. It is great for events such as birthday parties or baby/bridal showers. Set in an idyllic area of the park, it provides the perfect backdrop to showcase the natural beauty of the park.
