Curtis Hall & Arboretum

Elegant Curtis Hall was once the music room in the lavish Curtis Estate and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Situated on a picturesque 47-acre arboretum with rolling hills, two ponds, and more than 50 tree varieties, Curtis Hall offers a uniquely beautiful setting for weddings, anniversaries & other special events.

Curtis Hall and Arboretum has recently completed its renovation project. Jeffrey A. Miller Catering has partnered with the Township to serve as the exclusive caterer for weekend events at Curtis Hall. Jeffrey A. Miller’s has professional expertise in managing historic properties, and has helped oversee the considerable capital improvements including a new floor, new bride and groom rooms, new bathrooms, a wall mural, painting, an improved parking lot, and enhancements to the grounds and landscaping.
