Curtis Hall Arboretum has been renovated and revamped! This arboretum is surrounded with rich greenery and breathtaking landscapes.  Thank you Burkett Photography for all the stunning shots. Check out our feature in the Philadelphia Business Journal below!


Curtis Arboretum

Located in Wyncote, PA,  the hall was once a ballroom of the 1937 Cyrus Curtis Estate. Beyond the magnificent wrought-iron entrance gates is a vintage setting of rolling hills, two ponds, and over 40 varieties of trees. This hall had an old world charm touch and was in need of tender, love, and care for an elegant revamp.  Wait until you see this incredible space with a tent to seat 200 and countless photo oportunities.

Bishop Farmstead

The big red barn was constructed in 1932.  This vintage barn oversees 12+ acres of native grasslands – a rich habitat for wildflowers, birds and butterflies – and a historic farmhouse built in the 1750s by a second-generation Quaker farmer.   The recently completed renovation brings contemporary comfort and energy efficiency to a setting that still retains its authentic character. For weddings and private celebrations, the “big red barn” opens onto beautiful outdoor spaces for garden ceremonies and cocktails, while the interior is scaled for dinner and dancing for as many as 200 guests.

Mercer Museum and Fonthill Castle

The Mercer Museum is a 7-story history museum of every-day life in America during the 18th and 19th centuries.  Designed and built by Dr. Henry Chapman Mercer, the Mercer Museum is reminiscent of a castle, inside and out.  It was completed in 1916.  With a reception that includes dancing, there is capacity for 80 guests indoors or up to 120 guests when using the expanded venue with the attached tent. Your special day includes access to the museum for all of your guests.

A National Historic Landmark, Fonthill Castle was designed and built between 1908-1912 by Dr. Henry Chapman Mercer, archaeologist, collector, ceramist, and Renaissance man, and is situated on 30 private wooded acres approached via a long, tree-lined drive. Enjoy cocktails on the balcony of the Terrace Pavilion before descending the winding staircase to dine and dance under chandeliers in the ultimate White Wedding Tent nestled beside the castle
