Our venue is situated on Davenport Neck, an area in Westchester County with over 300 years of recorded history.  It is also one of the most picturesque, scenic spots on the rambling coastline of the Long Island Sound.  Breathtakingly beautiful views of the water from a historic Mansion, set amongst broad, sloping grounds, make the Davenport Mansion a venue like no other.




The land on which the Mansion sits was originally purchased in 1786 by Newbury Davenport where he built homes for his two sons, Lawrence and Newbury.  It stayed within the Davenport family for the next 143 years until 1929 when Miss Ana Davenport left the last parcel of land to the City of New Rochelle.


The Mansion has been hosting weddings since 1941, meaning we are one of the oldest wedding venues in the USA.  Unique Affair Catering & Events has over 30 years of experience in creating memories that will last a lifetime.  We know what it takes to make your day unforgettable.  A beautiful venue, gorgeous food and flawless service combined effortlessly are what we pride ourselves on.




We cater to all events, weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, christenings, corporate events and all special occasions.  The Davenport Mansion can host up to 225 guests.  We seek out only the most experienced chefs and our support staff are trained to the highest standards to ensure all your needs are met.  We have an open ballroom, reception area, outdoor seating, private rooms and valet parking.  The Davenport Mansion, On the Sound, is the perfect setting for your next event.
