Surrounded by acres of farmland, woodlands and landscaped grounds, Buena Vista Conference Center offers a serene yet sophisticated setting for indoor and outdoor weddings, business meetings, corporate functions as well as both formal and casual engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, family reunions and other social events up to 300 people. This 19th century grand mansion was built by Delaware and US Statesman John Middleton Clayton between 1845 and 1847. An impressive example of Greek revival style, it’s named to reflect the brilliant success in the Battle of Buena Vista during the Mexican-American War by the illustrious hero and future President of the United States, Major General Zachary Taylor. Today, Buena Vista is maintained by the State of Delaware’s Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs, whose primary mission is to preserve and showcase Delaware’s historic heritage. All proceeds from events go directly to the preservation efforts of this magnificent site so that present and future generations may continue to experience its unique legacy.
