• Exclusive Use of a National Monument for Events

    When you think about planning events, you may not think of national monuments as viable venues. Protected under federal law, these properties may seem out of reach and unobtainable. What you may not realize, though, is that you can get exclusive use of a national monument to host your next event. Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty are an excellent example of a beautiful and unique national monument that’s perfectly suited for event planning.

    Whether it’s for a personal or corporate event, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty provide a venue that’s both beautiful and meaningful. A poignant symbol of our American heritage, this national monument represents everything we as American citizens hold dear. When you hold your event at this beautiful facility, we provide all the attention to detail you’d expect, to ensure that your day is truly memorable and beautiful.

    Of course, there are guidelines and rules that must be followed when you’re enjoying the use of a national treasure. All food, beverage, retail, and special events management is handled by Evelyn Hill, Inc. (EHI). Everything brought onto the island for the event, including party rental supplies and floral arrangements, must be carried out after your event. Creative ideas for branding and decorating are a must, because nothing may be attached or affixed to the building. Décor that requires hanging or draping can be used, as long as it’s hung or draped with easels, pipe, and plate. There are many special in-house items that EHI provides, in order to reduce your event’s impact on our facilities. Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty are beautiful but aging, and care must be taken to prevent damage.

    Fortunately, you don’t have to give much thought to these regulations when you put yourself in the capable hands of Evelyn Hill, Inc. Experienced and professional, the staff of EHI will attend to every detail, ensuring the success of your event while protecting the legacy of our beautiful national monument. Working closely with you, EHI will work to meet your needs and exceed your expectations.
