Nonprofit Meeting Space
To serve as a community resource, the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation makes the Stimson-Green Mansion available as a free, small-scale meeting space to non-profit organizations who are members of the Washington Trust or who are sponsored by current members. The space most often available for complimentary use is a 20-person meeting room with an attached restroom, known historically as the Turkish Room. This room is in the basement and can be reached via one flight of stairs. The Library, Parlor, and Dining Room as well as the Carriage House may be available upon request and with a rental fee. Please review our nonprofit meeting guidelines for more information and complete the inquiry form for availability and reservations.
The Washington Trust offers regular public tours of the Stimson-Green Mansion and arranges private group and educational tours for students of all ages. Our tours provide insights into the architectural character and interior design features of one of Seattle’s most impressive examples of turn-of the-20th century residential architecture as well as a lively look at the life and times of the Stimson and Green families and their First Hill neighborhood.
Stimson-Green Mansion tours are typically offered the second Tuesday of each month from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. The cost is $10 for the general public, but free for Washington Trust members and a guest. Space is limited to 25 people per tour, and pre-registration is required. If less than five people are registered, tours may be cancelled. Please note that our century-old mansion can present challenges in terms of accessibility.
The Stimson-Green Mansion is one of Seattle’s premier wedding and special event venues. Kaspars Catering & Events is our exclusive caterer at the Mansion. For more information about renting the Mansion for your next event, contact Kaspars at 206-298-0123 or by email.
Film & Photo Shoots
For film/video productions, the rate for filming is $1,500 per day. In addition, we typically require one site manager for every 10 cast/crew members at the rate of $25/hr.
For photo shoots, the Mansion is available in half day increments of $500 for 4 hours. If the photo shoot were to occur on a week day, the staffing fee may not be necessary as Washington Trust staff would be on hand to assist the production. If there are more than 10 people on a photo shoot or if it were to occur outside of regular business hours, additional staffing fees may be required at a rate of $25/hour per staff person.
Please complete the inquiry form so we can best assess availability and need.
