About Us

Looking for a one-of-a-kind setting for your next special occasion? Invite your guests to experience the lure of The Woodlands where an 18th-century mansion and stable, along with elaborate Victorian funerary monuments sit nestled in a 54-acre lush, pastoral oasis in West Philadelphia.

The Woodlands offers a variety of options so you can create something unique to your needs:

  • The grand Hamilton Mansion, the oldest example of Federal architecture in the country, boasts bright and elegant event spaces including the spacious drawing room, lofty circular vestibule, and the stately main salon complete with a magnificent covered portico accessible through three sets of lovely french-style doors.

  • The rustic stable features a cobblestone floor and the original double barn doors, opening out to an alluring view.

  • The vast, park-like grounds are a modern oasis with majestic trees and curving green contours, just perfect for alfresco cocktails and dining.

Why host your event here?

Designated a National Historic Landmark District in recognition of its unique history and rich resources, The Woodlands is not your typical hotel ballroom or “wedding factory”.

All of The Woodlands' spaces are unfurnished, providing you the opportunity to conceive and design the perfect setting for your special affair.

From fine dining to food trucks, we allow many different catering options. Ask us about our preferred vendors.
