Venue Description

Established in 1811, and situated on five acres of wooded gently rolling land, the Pioneer Quakers made this location along the banks of Fountain Creek their place of worship.   Peacefulness and tranquility transcend this property making it the perfect backdrop for your wedding.  The 1858 Meeting House is simple in design allowing you to create an ambience to fit your style.  The 180-seat capacity sanctuary is filled with natural light and wonderful acoustics.  There are several outdoor vignettes that are quite suitable for ceremonies of any size.  Many couples dream of an outdoor wedding but dread the complications that come along with unpredictable weather.   At The Historic Meeting House At New Garden the ceremony can easily move in should the weather prevail.   The building is equipped with central heat and a/c, a portable/wireless sound system with mp3/cd integration, Wi-Fi, electronic keyboard, organ, piano, natural oak pews, large format video screen, banquet tables, folding chairs, and table service
