McCausland Hall (beside the museum at 2201 Westhaven Drive, Westport)

This hall can be the perfect site for a variety of events from wedding receptions to birthday parties, organizational meetings to fundraising events, or family reunions to workshops and seminars.  Amenities at McCausland Hall include the large reception room; tables and chairs; a kitchen complete with stove, refrigerator freezer, microwave, and dishwasher.  Dinnerware, utensils, glassware, large coffee urns, and punch bowls are also available. Occupancy is 154 and we can also help you find caterers and florists.

Museum Grounds

If your event would benefit from an outdoor setting, you can also rent the grounds which includes a gazebo, several picnic tables, and McCausland Hall together. Directly across from the harbor, this is a picturesque and roomy place to hold an event. The grounds can be rented with or without McCausland Hall.

Destruction Island Lens Room (next to the museum)

If you are planning a special event such as a wedding, or a recognition or memorial service, the Destruction Island Lens Room could be the perfect setting.  Although the seating for space is limited, the ramps on both sides of the Lens area provide adequate space for guest to stand and observe a ceremony.  The maximum capacity for this room is 99. NO FOOD OR DRINK IS ALLOWED IN THE LENS BUILDING.

The Grays Harbor Lighthouse (1020 Ocean Avenue, Westport)

The grounds around the lighthouse provide a lovely setting for weddings with the lighthouse offering a unique backdrop.  A small wedding group of no more than eight people can enjoy a ceremony at the top of the lighthouse.
