Mayfair Farms, the elegant banquet hall in West Orange that hosted U.S. presidents and catered thousands of weddings, proms, and luncheons, has closed after 80 years.

The family-run business, started by Martin L. Horn in 1942, shut down on June 30, leaving a trail of memories, and no doubt, a few tears among the generations of brides, grooms, prom queens and kings that had their ‘special day’ at Mayfair Farms.
