About Josephine Butler Parks Center

Formerly the Hungarian Embassy for the United States, the Josephine Butler Parks Center is a spacious Renaissance-revival style mansion boasting 40 rooms and 18,000 square feet of space. Its extensive facilities have undergone a landmark restoration, reviving the mansion to its former glory of the original 1927 Renaissance Revival design, while adapting the facility to provide modern conveniences to make your wedding day stress-free and perfect.

Now referred to as the Embassy of the Earth, the Josephine Butler Parks Center now has a global mission and is home to a growing coalition of partner organizations, providing office space to 10-12 community-based non-profit culture and service organizations.
