With two stunning romantic garden sites, an elegant ballroom, and the classic Abernethy Chapel we’ve created beautiful and distinct settings for your celebration. We’ve mastered the art of the event along with all of the service and details that go into making that event a success. Abernethy Center was established in 2001 with the opening of the ballroom, creating an elegant indoor space that is highly adaptable for your ceremony or reception. With the continued interest from the community, it was evident that there was also demand for outdoor wedding and event space. Abigail’s Garden, consisting of 5 acres of beautiful gardens and natural areas nestled along Abernethy Creek, opened in the spring of 2002. It immediately became one of the most sought after venues for wedding, corporate and social events in the Portland area.
