About 1840s Plaza

Located in Baltimore, Maryland, 1840s Plaza is a historic wedding venue for the local area, providing couples with a unique and elegant setting for their big day. Make your day more perfect with beautiful sites, a private courtyard garden, and elegant overnight accommodations.

Facilities and Capacity

Once you encounter the stately front gate of the charming venue, it opens to reveal a tranquil garden courtyard that leads to the boutique hotel, the 1840s Carrollton Inn. You’ll see three stories of architectural excellence fronted by a historical red-iron facade that rises before guests majestically. From first glance, the 1840s Plaza serves as the ideal setting for your picture-perfect wedding. As you and your guests are swept away into the grace and beauty of an era past, life and excitement will glow through the many sparkling windows. The three floors of the picturesque Fava Building are all available for your special day. From the Latin-inspired first-floor 1840s cabaret-style to the second floor 1840s city-lite-theme, the unique decor will create a charming atmosphere for the joyous occasion. The second floor also features authentic Baltimore vignettes, historical white tower diner, and a lounge-like style. In addition to those two spaces, the 1840s Plaza boasts an elegant 1840s ballroom with sweeping city views, hardwood dancefloor, crystal chandeliers, and hand-painted murals of historic Baltimore. The ballroom is one of the most sophisticated and unique in the Inner Harbor area. No matter the vision or budget, there is a fitting venue for your day.

    Beautiful venue in a convenient location in Downtown Baltimore. Great for out-of-town guests!

    Although we reside in DC/MD/VA area, majority of our guests were from out of town, and we wanted to ensure convenience for them. Located in the Inner Harbor, the venue is close by the BWI airport, and right next to the venue is a hotel within a short walking distance. We had a room block with the hotel, and because of the proximity to the venue, our out-of-town guests did not need to rent a car and explored Downtown Baltimore. For guests driving to the venue, complimentary valet parking is provided the day of which was a big plus.

    The 1840s staff are extremely professional, friendly and accommodating, especially Stasia, who served as our main POC. She made us feel like family.

    It’s a great venue for photos, especially the backdrop of the Fava building. The Carrollton Inn is a very lovely getting ready spot day of and place to stay on the wedding night. The Carrollton Inn breakfast is sooo good - we had to throw this in as well!

    Thank you 1840s for the great experience and memorable wedding day! And a special THANK YOU to Stasia!
