On a hillside west of the entrance to Champoeg State Park, above the banks of the Willamette River, stands the home of Robert Newell. Built in 1852, the house sits on just under three acres and is surrounded by gardens and farm lands. Our gardens consist of heritage roses, perennial beds, a large lawn with mature trees and a small orchard. Also included in the complex is an 1850's one room school and jail. The grounds of the complex makes a charming backdrop for weddings, providing a wonderful step back in time.

The Newell House Museum Complex has several unique collections of Oregon history artifacts, creating a wonderful atmosphere for your guests. Our collection includes the Oregon Inaugural Ball Gown Collection, with the earliest gown dating back to 1851. Newell House has an extensive collection of quilts, needlework, and other piece goods dating back to the 1700's. There are also many carding, spinning, and weaving tools on display from many original pioneer families. The museum is fortunate to have a significant collection of early basket, bead, and leather work from many northwest Indian tribes, as well as many items once owned by the last Indian Princess of Coos Bay.

The Newell House Museum offers you the flexibility to create the wedding package that fits your specific wedding requests and needs, creating an event to remember for a lifetime! Judy Van Atta, our on-site wedding coordinator is available to answer any questions you may have. Call to reserve your date and speak with Judy at (503) 678-5537.

The Robert Newell House Museum Complex sits just outside of the Champoeg State Heritage Area located south of Wilsonville between I-5 and Hwy 99W. Read less

I can't say enough good things about the Newell House venue and Judy and Dennis. From the moment we stepped on the grounds in January, Judy was so friendly and welcoming. Over the next few months, as we talked, planned, and emailed (which she was almost immediate with her responses), she told us of various options and had practical suggestions that had worked in previous weddings, and was just generally a tremendous help. She was encouraging when we were "freaking out" and extremely supportive. On my daughter's wedding day, we set up amid rain showers (Judy's crew had previously set up a nice canopy for seating during the ceremony and one for the caterer) and Judy, her husband, and other helpers were there to help us and provide cover for our decorations. They were not at all intrusive but if anything was needed they were like genies and our requests were granted immediately. The grounds were beautiful with everything green, flowering, well manicured, and clean. The museum was open for our guests after the ceremony, which was very interesting. By the time we cleaned up, we all felt like we made new friends and could not have chosen a better outdoor venue.

Newell House was a beautiful place for our daughter's wedding. I found that Judy couldn't be more helpful with her planning suggestions and even just being present during to lend a hand in whatever needed to be done in the hours of setup and tear-down. She was always quick to respond to emails. Newell lends a unique historic flavor in addition to the beauty. My daughter wasn't particularly looking for a historic theme, but the house museum, log cabin, jail, school house, school bell and arbor areas all just gave it a very charming and beautiful atmosphere. The log cabin was actually in the process of reconstruction at the time of the wedding, but Judy made sure it was to a point that only positively contributed. Everything worked wonderfully. If I had to point out any cautions, the only thing I can think of is that it is limited on refrigerator and food prep space. It is probably a better venue to have catered.

Perfect venue for an outdoor wedding! Very pretty and great shade.
Unique, lots of charm. They have an old school house and a jail :)
Not to mention - a museum - which automatically gives the guests something to do in the dreaded cocktail hour.

Judy was great to work with. Lots of good ideas too.
Very flexible with set up, decorations and clean up. We had open fire (s'more stations and sparklers) as well as alcohol. No requirements as far as other vendors you have to use.

Can't say enough good things about the venue and Judy.
Wouldn't have done anything differently.

The setting is beautiful, the property has charm and history, and the people who manage it are wonderful to work with. We got many similar comments from our guests, vendors, and friends who helped us with set-up or other details. We could not have been happier with the venue. Because we planned an outdoor wedding in early May (who in Oregon does that?!) we ordered a 60' X 40' tent and we were glad we did -- we needed it for SHADE because it was almost 80 degrees. The Newell House has many nice touches -- the bridal party had a private dressing area behind the historic home, the men got ready in the old schoolhouse on the property, the photographer set up an outdoor "photo-booth" area next to the Butteville Jailhouse, and the Van Atta's even rolled out a vintage Model-T which also drew lots of photos . When the pastor introduced the new husband and wife, Judy's husband rang the schoolhouse bell -- very fun!
Judy Van Atta was terrific from the day she first showed us around, through all the many e-mails and site visits, to the wedding day and clean-up the morning after -- very organized, responsive, always friendly to everyone, and extremely helpful. She tries to find a way to say "yes" to every reasonable request, and offers good advice from other weddings or events they've had. Her husband was very nice also -- the grounds were kept up beautifully, and everything they provided was set-up exactly as promised. They have chairs (200), picnic tables and benches, a few tables, and a lighting package for a small extra cost (worth it), lots of parking. There is no kitchen area but our caterer had no issues. We rented the tent, dance floor, plates, wine glasses and flatware, and brought extra tables for the reception, flowers and decor items. We were very happy that we chose the Newell House -- the beauty and charm are reflected in our wedding pictures, and we have wonderful memories of a very special day.

Judy and her husband were wonderful and really helped everything come together. Their expertise was appreciate SOOOO much! I would highly recommend them if anyone was looking for a venue for a wedding.

The only suggestion would be to have the flexiblity to add the "clean up hour" that is allowed for the next day to be added to the day of the event to save additional driving out to the venue

Dear Hanna,

Thank you for your wonderful review and your suggestion.

The extra hour the next day is added for your convenience as it is so difficult to see after dark for that added bit of making sure everything has been picked up to receive your deposit back.

We were so happy to be able to do that for you on Sunday to save you that long drive, plus you and your helpers did a great job on the initial clearing the day of the event, which we so appreciated.

Thank you for choosing Newell House and letting us share in this wonderful day for you and your family.

Our daughter's wedding took place at the museum. Judy and Dennis were wonderful and very helpful. I believe they go beyond the call of duty. We received many compliments on the beauty of the grounds. The guest had an hour to tour the museum after the ceremony. There are areas that are awesome for pictures and we got to utilize the buildings into the ceremony. Judy was like having a wedding planner and helped us to get it organized. I would recommend the Newall House to anyone. It was a wonderful experience.

My husband and I just renewed our vows and we are so happy we chose the Newell House. Judy and her husband Dennis are absolutely wonderful people and are so easy to work with.
The whole area is gorgeous and peaceful and looked exactly as we hoped on our wedding day. Judy was very flexible any time we had a change in plans or times.
On the day of the wedding things were very chaotic for us and Judy and Dennis pitched right in and helped us set up our decorations, helped with some last minute buffet preparations and even gave us some coffee for our maker when we forgot ours. I honestly don't know what we would have done without their help.
They are so kind and compassionate and we felt that they genuinely cared that we had a wonderful experience. They went above and beyond what was expected of them to ensure we had the wedding of our dreams .
I would highly recommend the Newell House for ANY special event!

They are so kind and compassionate and we felt that they genuinely cared that we had a wonderful experience. They went above and beyond what was expected of them to ensure we had the wedding of our dreams .
I would highly recommend the Newell House for ANY special event! Read less

This venue met and exceeded all of our expectations. A totally affordable, picturesque venue, adjacent to a state park. The resident managers of the Newell House Museum are very professional, kind and accomodating. I highly recommend this venue for down-to-earth folks like us.

We had a wonderful experience at the Robert Newell House for our wedding. Judy and Dennis were extremely helpful along the way, including the wedding day with clean up and the following morning for clean up. It was like having a wedding planner at times without paying for one. The price is very affordable and the scenery is breathtaking: our pictures look like the background is staged. The venue is easy to work with and there are many options for where you want to place things. We have recommended it to anyone who has asked about venues, it's a great place!

We got married at the Newell House Museum just this past summer. We had a wonderful experience working with Judy. She was so flexible and easy going it was refreshing. In talking with other venues, it seemed like everyone had a huge list of rules - no red wine because it stains, nothing staked into the ground because it leaves a hole, no dogs, no this that and the other thing. But with Judy, it was "sure no problem, we have a mop if something spills, grass grows back, it's not a big deal". Judy also offered to put all our white wine in her frig the night before and to put fresh ice on the kegs so we could bring them all the day before and have one less thing to do the day of. To me, that was going far beyond what was expected.
One thing we also liked was the fact that the museum uses the proceeds of the wedding to keep the museum in operation - preserving a bit of Oregon history. We had looked at vineyards and other "full service" venues that churn out the weddings all summer and they felt generic - beautiful but kind of predictable and like it's been done before. The Newell House felt unique and charming - laid back and comfortable - just like we wanted our wedding to be.
They only schedule a handful of weddings throughout the summer and never more than one a weekend, so you don't feel rushed to get in and out before the next bridal party swoops in.
Make sure your caterer is comfortable with a site that doesn't have a commercial kitchen facility and potable water. Our caterer, Sassafras Catering, has done more with less available so it wasn't a problem and it was a spectacular dinner. But a site visit by the caterer is a must in advance of the wedding.

I just had my wedding here last weekend. The coordinator Judy, was very flexible and worked with me, my coordinator, and our tent vendor for a rain plan. The wedding was beautiful. I really appreciate the natural beauty of the Newell House and that our money went to support the museum and educational programs run on the property. Judy always responded to my emails and phone calls promptly. I would highly recommend this vender.
