The Riley House

Where history comes alive through your celebrations...

Located adjacent to Elm Street Bakery at 644 Oakwood Avenue is The Riley House, a new expansion of Elm Street Bakery designed to host your events and parties in the historic home of General Aaron Riley - one of the founding fathers of East Aurora. Through a detailed renovation we have brought the first floor parlor rooms back to life and built a speakeasy bar in the cellar. Whether you are looking to celebrate a bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, or other private event, the charm of the historic Riley House creates a perfect ambiance. We will customize a seasonal menu with our Executive Chef for your special event.
