The Greek Revival style Mansion at 99 South Main Street in Churchville, New York was built in the year 1905 as the private home of New York State Senator William Ormrod and his wife. Senator Ormrod was a friend of George Eastman and had the good taste to select the same architect and craftsmen as Mr. Eastman to build this fine country estate. The Mansion consists of 3 full stories of 3100 square feet of living space each. There is also a full size basement complete with wine cellar. In the mansion, there are nine working fireplaces made with six styles of imported Italian marble hand cut by European craftsmen. There are 15 bedrooms, seven baths, a gaming room, and billiard room and 1000 square foot ballroom complete with orchestra pit. Other amenities include Hand painted canvas ceiling and walls, several original stained glass windows, all original light fixtures and 4 acres of ponds, gardens and beautiful lawn. The first floor of the mansion is open for guests to tour before every function begins. The second floor is home to the owners, Chris and Lisa Steubing and their three children. The third floor is home to Lisa’s mom, Gladys Van Brederode.
Our banquet facility is steps away to the mansion and reflects the same ambiance. This adjacent facility, once a large indoor swimming pool, has been completely renovated to reflect the elegance of the mansion next door. In muted tones of green and burgundy, the long wall of our facility is showcased by three exquisite stained windows, which were recovered from the attic of the mansion and restored. These windows are backlit and often serve as a focal point for the head table during our wedding receptions. Other windows in the banquet facility overlook our beautiful gardens that bloom from April through October. We welcome you to Gatherings at the Senator’s Mansion and hope you enjoy your visit.
