Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Nearly 300 years of history: This Old City landmark celebrating the birthplace of the American flag was once home to Betsy Ross. The original Colonial house still stands as a museum, and site rentals support its preservation and education efforts.
  • The charming cobblestone courtyard provides a memorable open-air setting for an intimate ceremony, cocktail reception, or banquet. Café-style tables and chairs are available, and the tentable space features vintage street lamp lighting.
  • Arrange a visit from Betsy Ross herself or other major colonial figures with the Once Upon A Nation History Makers. These reenactors have thoroughly researched the people they're portraying and can mingle with your guests or even officiate or emcee your event.
