WHERE FORM MEETS FUNCTION
The Belo boasts an atmosphere for conducting business that is unmatched in the city. As few as 10 or as many as 1,000 guests can gather for breakfast meetings,
luncheons, receptions, or elegant dinner affairs. The Belo Mansion’s grand setting
in the heart of the Dallas Arts District is a most appropriate location, as we
celebrate our skill in the culinary arts alongside the city’s finest representatives of
the visual and performing arts.
Your event at The Belo Mansion & Pavilion will be an unforgettable celebration foryou and your guests in the most beautiful venue in the city. Every special event at
the Belo Mansion adds another very special chapter to its ever expanding history.
Designed in the neo-classical revival style, the Belo Mansion was built in the late
1800’s by Colonel Alfred Horatio Belo, who founded the Dallas Morning News.
The house was said to be constructed after the family home in Salem, North
Carolina, and conceived as a tribute to Colonel Belo’s wife, Nettie.
In 1977, the Colonel’s granddaughter, Helen Belo Morrison, agreed to sell the
property to the Dallas Bar Association. She had been born in the house in
1902 and felt the Bar’s plan to restore the home as the Dallas Legal Education
Center was in accordance with family principles and feelings. The Dallas Bar
Association connected the historic home and added a chapel with an expansive,
glass-roofed atrium. In 2003, The Dallas Bar Association added the exquisite
Pavilion and once again, the expansive past was linked to the present and future
through innovative design and distinctive architecture.
