Meeting Spaces

Consistent with the manor house Robert Allerton built to be his home, the meeting rooms of Allerton Retreat Center feature their original antique wood paneling, quarter-sawn oak flooring, and expansive windows which capture natural light and afford pastoral views of the Park and natural areas. Built in 1900, today the Mansion is equipped with state-of-the art audio-visual equipment and wireless Internet access.
