Mr. Abernathy, the original owner, served as mayor of Pittsburg for 52 years. The Abernathy House always remained a landmark of the town; it underwent expansions after WWII, but the character of the home has remained unchanged.

In 2001, The Abernathy House was purchased by The Twining Family, who opened the venue's doors for events... and they've been celebrating special occasions ever since! They continue to operate the venue and maintain the historic home today.

Today, The Abernathy House welcomes guests for all kinds of special events, from elegant wedding receptions and private dinners to holiday parties and corporate retreats. Its staff is committed to providing a hospitable experience.
