The Bereiter Museum
The Bereiter Museum

The Bereiter House, built in 1908, is owned by the City of Kent and operated by the Greater Kent Historical Society.  The historic home is available for event rentals.




The piano works fine
Be sure to invite a pianist.  This Bush and Lane still sings!

The first floor of this beautiful Craftsman style home may be used for events such as weddings, receptions, teas, luncheons and garden parties.

The dining room provides an inviting atmosphere for catered dinners or small gatherings.  Eight guests can comfortably enjoy a meal around our period table with silver and china place settings.
