Venue Description

Allison Mansion Promo Code Holiday Parties 
Tucked away on a hill off Cold Spring Road, Allison Mansion is the perfect site for any special occasion.
 
This unique venue on the campus of Marian University is an ideal setting for your event. The mansion not only offers 8,000 square feet of elegant space, but also the scenic surrounding of the gardens of Riverdale and the 55-acre Nina Mason Pulliam EcoLab.
 
From your first introduction to the mansion, you’ll see what sets us apart from the hotel and banquet halls. Luxurious décor and a breathtaking aviary are just a few features that make this stunning mansion an Indianapolis hidden treasure. Throughout the entire mansion beauty abounds.
 
Enjoy lavishly designed large open rooms, elegant wood and marble carvings, and magnificent examples of old-world craftsmanship that include:
  • Stunning two-story grand foyer of now-extinct Circassian walnut wood walls with a hand-carved leaf and berry motif
  • Silver chandelier imported from Germany, gracing the foyer’s ceiling
  • Sweeping staircase built of solid hand-carved walnut
  • Breathtaking aviary with white Italian marble walls and Tiffany-style art glass ceiling
  • Panoramic view of the wetlands and historic Jen Jensen landscape design
  • Leather panels with gilded carved boarders covering the walls of the Gothic-style library
  • Optional outdoor patio with scenic backdrop Completed in 1914 for an automotive entrepreneur James A. Allison (one of the four founders of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the Indianapolis 500 automobile race), the mansion took three years to complete at a reported cost of $2 million.
The exterior of the house, designed by the Indianapolis architect Herbert Bass, is an eclectic blend of early Prairie School and Lombardy Villa architecture. Allison hired William Price, of the Philadelphia firm of Price and McLanahan, to complete the interior. The interior is lavishly designed in a traditional European aesthetic.
 
The Allison Mansion can accommodate up to 200 guests for wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, anniversary and birthday parties, or any type of social event. The mansion is also an ideal location and setting for corporate retreats and conferences.
