Currently taking appointments for 2017 reservations.

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 Newell Pioneer Village is the Pioneer Mothers Memorial Cabin and an 1850's one room school and jail. The grounds of the Village makes a charming backdrop for weddings, providing a wonderful step back in time.

The Newell Pioneer Village 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 1849. 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 Pioneer Village 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 Newell Pioneer Village sits just outside of the Champoeg State Heritage Area located south of Wilsonville between I-5 and Hwy 99W.

My husband and I got married here on August 29th and it was amazing! Judy at the venue could not have been more flexible and helpful as we made a lot of last-minute changes to adjust for the weather. Through the entire planning process and especially on the day of, she was wonderful! Beautiful venue and excellent service! I would recommend to anyone and everyone! CHECK THIS PLACE OUT!

I, like everyone else, have only the best things to say about Judy and Dennis. The grounds are spectacular, and full of beautiful trees providing much needed shade. It's wonderful and peaceful, and I hate leaving.
Judy is so amazingly easy and helpful. Making perfect suggestions for all the little details I hadn't even thought of, like cake plates. She even coordinated directly with our caterer. Everyone had a wonderful day, and we were all so comfortable. Everything fell into place like magic, thanks to Judy and Dennis.

We could not have asked for a better venue for my daughters wedding. The grounds are so beautiful. Even on one of the hottest days of the year, there was plenty of shade to be had. Judy and Dennis really take all the stress away and help with the smallest details. You will not be disappointed having an event at the Newell Pioneer Village.

We could not have asked for anything else from the Newell House. Judy and Dennis were both a huge help on the day of the wedding and before. So many people commented on how beautiful and perfect the venue was. The addition of the cabin on the property as well as the concrete dance floor and landscaping make it an absolutely stunning property your party can spread out on.
We kept thinking of all the other venues we saw that were charging twice as much and felt like we got such an awesome place with such great people managing it for a steal. All of your money goes back to funding the DAR which also made us feel wonderful as it funds the preservation of history and education. What more could you want from a location? I cannot recommend this venue highly enough.

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.
