Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • With over 130 years of history and pristine, wooded surroundings, this two-story former mill boasts lush, natural backdrops and rustic-chic structures, creating a striking, photo-worthy combo.
  • Set your ceremony facing the trees, or on the front lawn, with the mill’s stately tower as your backdrop. If you’re envisioning an indoor event (or if the weather is uncooperative), there’s plenty of room inside.
  • The mill has an impressive 30-foot vaulted ceiling with intricate exposed wooden rafters. Walls of weathered plaster and rows of large, arched windows round out the vintage-industrial aesthetic.
