Hammond Castle: Private Rentals

postcrd_front_towers.jpg

The unique ambiance of Hammond Castle, so quaintly nestled on Gloucester's rocky Atlantic coast, is the perfect setting for that memorable event.  What began as a dream by Dr. John Hays Hammond, Jr., and as a wedding present for his bride is still here today for you.

As you are renting a fully functioning museum with regularly scheduled hours and events rentals will start after closing hours.  Areas comprising the rental include the great hall, Renaissance dining room, the courtyard, and the ocean-side lawn with its spectcular views. 

The rental fee includes one-half hour of rehearsal time if a wedding ceremony is scheduled at the Museum.  It also includes two hours in which to set up, and one-half hour to break down the event. Functions start after 4 PM.  This includes your set-up, the caterer's arrival, the photographers setup, floral decorations being placed, and wedding party and guests arriving.  If your photographer requires more time to prepare for the bridal shoot their is an extra charge subject to our approval.

Corporate Rentals are encouraged as an opportunity for your employees to enjoy the seaside home of Dr. and Mrs. John Hays Hammond, Jr .  Award dinners, clambakes, and small meetings are excellent ways the Hammond's home continues the tradition established over the years when notable celebrities, scientists, musicians and world leaders met here to enjoy the Hammond experience. 

Rental Fee   (3 hour minimum)  Interior and Lawn
Fridays, Saturdays:  $950.00 an hour ... Sundays thru Thursdays may be booked at a reduced rental fee.

To reserve a date, you sign a rental contract and pay a deposit.  The balance must be paid one month prior to your event.

Please contact our Functions Director at (978-283-2081) Also ask her about holding your "rehearsal dinner" or "holiday party" at the castle.

We look forward to working with you to make your rental simply the very best in the most unique location ever conceived.
