  • It's a beautifully kept old mansion, that now belongs to Harford County, open to the public for family and social events. The staff was really friendly, the cost to rent the whole facility is reasonable, and it'd a perfect venue for an elegant wedding. There's plenty of parking and the grounds are really nice as well.
  • This venue makes me want to redo my wedding. The grounds and the mansion are spectacular.
  • Went for an art show. Funky building space. Knowledgeable staff. Open for Limited time only on Sundays and Wednesdays
  • I was there for a brunch wedding and it was a beautiful setting. I know they were having an art show there as well later that day. It is a great location for intimate gatherings.
  • It has piano recitals also.
