Weddings at Union Mills

The Gardens and Tannery
Union Mills Homestead

Join us for your special day!

The Union Mills Homestead is available to host your wedding or other special event.  The gardens at the Union Mills Homestead, designed by Bessy Shriver Kemp in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, are lovingly maintained in keeping with Bessy’s original design.  The Tannery (where leather was made) was part of the early industrial complex at Union Mills, dating to 1797.  - Click to download Wedding flier


Most couples choose to be married in the upper gardens around the goldfish pond on the east side of the historic Union Mills Homestead.
From the upper gardens, guests cross a wooden bridge over the millrace that powers the 1797 Shriver Grist Mill, then stroll through charming gardens below, to the Tannery for the reception.
Guests love the relaxed atmosphere of the barn-like Tannery. This building was the drying shed for the A.K. Shriver & Sons Tannery, rebuilt in the early 1990s using traditional timber framing techniques.
The rustic elegance of the Tannery blends perfectly with table settings for your reception event.  The Tannery can accommodate seating for up to 150 guests, and we can expand to handle even more!

In order to protect this unique historic landmark, we have a designated caterer, Tom Schumann at Kountry Kafe & Catering.  Tom is super to work with, call him at 410-876-0316 with any questions!
