The Ebell of Santa Ana was designed in 1924 by one of the most famous architects in Orange County and originally functioned as a space for women’s education and philanthropic work. College was an unlikely path for women in the 1800s, and the Ebell Society was meant to be a venue for women’s educational and cultural enrichment.
Today, the building is used for all types of special events, educational events, corporate gatherings, and theater productions. The venue and non-profit society members continue with the legacy, with participation and encouragement of the educational, cultural, and social growth of the Santa Ana community. The picturesque venue is full of prominent history and nostalgic charm. Not only is the venue known for its unique features, it is also surrounded by hundred-year-old oak trees, and near thriving art and downtown communities.
In addition to its extraordinary setting, the Ebell offers exclusive catering and full bar services by award winning Colette’s Catering & Events.
