Celebrate Your Special Occasion With A Step Back In Time!
Plan your next family get together, business lunch, group outing at one of our City’s most notable historic Sites.
A heritage lunch or dinner by the hearth in the Summer Kitchen at the Ermatinger•Clergue National Historic Site is the perfect backdrop to your event
As seen in the writings of William Cullen Bryant, Mr. Ermatinger was well known for his hospitality and extravagant meals. “Not far from the church stands a building, regarded (by the residence of the area) as a wonder of architecture, the stone house, la maison de Pierre, as they call it, a large mansion built of stone by a former agent of the Northwest or Hudson Bay Company, who lived here in a kind of grand manorial style, with his servants, and horses and hounds, and gave hospitable dinners in those days when it was the fashion for the host to do his best to drink his guests under the table …”
Today, we continue this with this tradition by offering guests a unique dining experience. The summer kitchen is the perfect setting for guests to gather together and enjoy an amazing meal just as Mr. Ermatinger would have done with his guests so many years ago. We offer a wide selection of historic menus that can be customized to suit dietary needs.
The majority of the vegetables/produce used for the lunches and dinners come from our very own gardens. All of our menus are historically based, but can be customized to suit most dietary need
