Reception Venues

Local Reception Venues

Sellwood-Moreland has a few gathering places ideal for wedding receptions, private celebrations and events. Several indoor and outdoor venue options are available well within a very short distance of the Oaks Pioneer Church.

The SMILE Station is a local venue ideal for receptions and community meetings. Built in 1926, it was originally a firehouse and later remodeled to serve the community’s needs. SMILE Station serves as the SMILE (Sellwood-Moreland Improvement League) headquarters, and hosts many community meetings and private events.


The SMILE Station is available for rent for celebrations, meetings, retreats and concerts.  It is an affordable, first class facility that offers a vintage interior with landscaped grounds, a baby grand piano, fireplace, commercial kitchen, round table seating for 60 with capacity for 100 and is handicapped accessible

Visit the SMILE Station website for more information.
