John and Elsie Williams Conference Center
Graceful and private setting for both indoor and outdoor functions
The Williams Conference Center is a graceful and private setting for both indoor and outdoor functions in downtown Millsboro. This former home of United States Senator John J. Williams and his wife Elsie is now owned and managed as a conference center by the Delaware Technical and Community College's Owens Campus. The 1927 home and surrounding gardens make a prestigious yet comfortable setting for business and industry meetings, holiday parties, and special receptions. Elegantly furnished in the style of the late 50's and early 60's and seasonally decorated, the home features displays of Republican political memorabilia related to Senator and Mrs. Williams. The Williams Conference Center is conveniently located within walking distance of Millsboro's downtown shopping and dining establishments.
Four rooms on the ground floor of the home can be combined to provide space for larger receptions, while the Conference Room and Living Room offer seating space for small groups. The landscaped grounds and canopy tents are available for outdoor functions. Catering is arranged by the facility user, and requests are processed through the Delaware Technical and Community College catering service. An on-site kitchen is available for refrigeration and warming only, and the Conference Center can provide beverage service and light fare. Alcoholic beverages are allowed with the permission of the College. Ample parking is located across State Street, with a small parking lot at the building. With assistance, the Conference Center is handicapped accessible. Overnight accommodations are available nearby.
Located on State St. near Rt. 24, downtown Millsboro. Office hours: Monday thru Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Facilities available daily. Allow 2-4 weeks advance booking.
