Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Founded in the 19th century, this furnace complex is a National Historic Landmark. The site has been a museum since 1983 and is deeply imbued with the history of the area.
  • Two indoor and five outdoor spaces offer a variety of versatile backdrops for your event. The brand new visitor's center contains a grand event room with an impressively high ceiling and sleekly modern architectural details, plus a more intimate gathering space that is well suited for bridal prep.
  • Water fountains dance in the Spray Pond, offering a soothing background for a reception on the spacious and easily customizable patio. Other options include the Casting Shed, which features a stage and view of the historic blast furnace, and the iconic Water Tower.
