Doko Manor first opened in March 2013. The name “Doko,” is believed to be an Indian name meaning “watering place.” Another source states that Doko was an African name meaning “where the iron horse drinks.” Both of these meanings are appropriate because in the early days, the steam engines stopped here to take on water and fuel. The water was stored in a wooden tower which was used until steam engines disappeared. You can see a picture of the old water tower on the wall at the Manor.
Located in 22 acre Doko Meadows Park, the Manor features over 5000 square feet of usable interior event space including a 3240 square foot ballroom, an 700 square foot gallery/lobby, a business conference room, a full catering kitchen, spacious front porches, two picturesque back porches complete with rocking chairs and a beautiful outside pergola bordering a scenic small lake. Doko Manor is truly an undiscovered jewel and we invite you to come visit us and take a tour of our elegant and refined property.
