Individual & Historic

Dora House is one of the most historic buildings in the area and arguably one of the most distinctive due to its unique Dutch-style architecture and character features. It has always been a magnet for the creative and over its lifetime it has been a home - and studio space -for sculptors, architects, photographers, painters and designers.

Come for a visit to see how our spaces would suit your event.
