The Salisbury House holds a special meaning to me because my husband proposed to me there and our wedding reception was held there also. What a lovely place. Here's a description that I found and it describes it perfectly. Located on Tonawanda Drive, the Salisbury House & Gardens is a furnished 1920s mansion and botanical garden. The historic stone mansion contains an art museum, a concert venue, and a library. It is one of the top romantic attractions in Des Moines, Iowa. Carl and Edith Weeks built the Salisbury House after a visit to the 15th century Kings House in Salisbury, England. The art museum houses the Weeks’ collections of books, decorative art, and fine art, as well as musical instruments. The Salisbury House also hosts special events such as yoga in the gardens, book clubs, concerts, and dinners. The house and gardens can be rented for private functions like weddings and parties.

Lovely lady she's patient and understanding with your questions and concerns with any and all things. We booked this location for our wedding (has not happened yet). But done with ease!

No tours Mondays and during special events, so check the website calendar first! However, the staff is extremely friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. Great place to explore history, art, curation and the minds of a unique set of architects in a magnificent estate which provides for weddings and other events. Definitely worth a stop.
