Born the daughter of poor Irish immigrants, Margaret Brown became a legend in her own time and was immortalized as the "Unsinkable Molly Brown". This two-story buttered brick home was this indomitable woman's celebrated 450 acre country retreat featuring a fishing pond, terraced lawns and stunning flower beds. In 1928 the Fehlmann family purchased the house and five generations of the family have lovingly continued to maintain it.

The main floor includes four historic, Victorian style rooms including the parlor, library, country room and dining room. Each room features  high ceilings, original woodwork and period furnishings. For private catered events, our country kitchen may be used by your caterer. In addition to the historic house with its inviting wrap-around porch, there are the beautiful grounds situated on one acre on the corner of Wadsworth and Yale.

In 2009, the family completed an extensive renovation of the outside gardens, installing new brick patios, curving pathways under mature trees, fountains, and graceful lawns surrounded by privacy walls. There is also a new 1500 square foot event tent, plenty of safe parking and lots of room to stroll and celebrate life's most important events.

The Molly Brown Summer House Museum & Event Center is a warm and inviting gathering place for family and friends. Granddaughter Mary Rose Shearer (better known as Momo) provides personalized tours of the historic home, an elegant tea room and choice menus for brunch, lunch and dinner. There are also classes, entertainment and educational events which are open to the public. Please visit our Calendar for more information. 

Private events including family reunions, graduation parties, birthdays, anniversaries, baby and bridal showers, weddings and receptions, club and corporate meetings and more may be hosted here. Guests may reserve the house, grounds, tent or any combination to accommodate their needs. Please visit our Event Planning pages for more information.
