Originally owned by Colonel Clarence S. Wadsworth, the Wadsworth Mansion in Middletown (then known as “Long Hill”) exchanged hands several times and eventually fell into disrepair. Preservationists asked the City of Middletown to restore Long Hill to its former glory. The City complied and a fully-restored Wadsworth Mansion opened its doors in 1999. The venue can accommodate up to 200 guests for seated events and larger numbers for cocktail parties. Only one event is hosted per day, allowing you to pick the start and end time of your event.
