Built in 1871 as the Keystone Hotel, this four-story mansion was built by Joseph Miller Watson. The property was completely destroyed by a fire in 1887. Built up again in 1890 and designed by Frank Furness, this new building was inspired by a 16th-century French chateau. Eventually the hotel was foreclosed and the building was bought by the Baldwin School for girls, where it has been kept intact as The Baldwin School event venue known today.

Having worked in the industry for almost 5 years, I have been to many venues all over the Philadelphia area. The Baldwin School rivals every venue I've seen in their professionalism, value, accommodations, beauty, and charm.Sent on 05/31/2018
Jane Darnell works there as the event coordinator. WOW! She went above and beyond! She and her staff were so accommodating, helping us through the process, making sure we had all the equipment we needed and working with all the other event professionals without me having to be involved. She was incredible with the set up for the wedding and the day-of. She was there from start to finish, making sure we had everything we needed! Amazing!
The school itself is absolutely gorgeous. I had 250 guests in the main ballroom/dining room and the cocktail hour in the main hall and the room "Assembly." My guests loved it. I got so many compliments about the whole place. They have beautiful furniture placed throughout so the guests can lounge and enjoy. They also have a huge porch on the back (which we were so sad we couldn't use for cocktail hour due to weather reasons.) So many options! You can do so much with the space. The wood throughout is so classic.
The value for the school is INCREDIBLE!! Their pricing is so reasonable. I feel like I found a rare gem. They were so excellent to work with and all of my guests were blown away by the space. I loved having my wedding there. They just started doing events for the public. If you're lucky enough that your date is available - Do NOT hesitate! Book this venue!!
I'm so happy I found them for my day.

Beautiful building, wonderful service, reasonable prices
If you're looking for old world charm, you don't have to go all the way to Europe for your wedding--the Baldwin School has it in spades! The building exterior makes a jaw-dropping first impression on your guests, and the interiors ooze charm with all the wood paneling, antique furniture, oil paintings, and all that irreplaceable Victorian-era architecture.
The dining area is simply massive, with one of the best open layouts that we came across. If you need to fit a lot of guests at dinner but still want your event to feel nice and classy, this is your place.
The staff was wonderful, and were very helpful leading up to the event. They were extremely flexible when it came to letting us decorate--just don't do anything permanent to the building and pretty much anything goes.
The site coordinator, Jane Darnell, was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was always in contact, helpful with ideas as well as execution, and she's completely unflappable. Jane was such a calming presence while we were setting up the day before, and made everything go off perfectly the day of.
We could not have made a better choice for our venue! You get your own fairy tale castle at real world prices, what more can I say! Book your wedding here and you won't regret it.

Best Day Ever
We could not have asked for a better experience- a truly one of a kind venue with an equally one of a kind coordinator in Baldwin's own Jane Darnell. A truly magical day from start to finish. Choose Baldwin, and you can confidently relax and savor every moment.

The Baldwin School is perfect to host any kind of event. Myself and seven other photographers created a collaborative styled shoot with other vendors and Jane Darnell at the the Baldwin School. The large spaces and natural light really gave us unlimited possibilities to have our visions come to life. It is difficult to find a venue that has a perfect balance between a beautiful outdoor and indoor space. The spaces are historic but versatile to make modern. I look forward to continuing to work with Jane and photograph at the Baldwin School for further events and weddings.
Having grown up in the Main Line area and Photographed several weddings at the Baldwin, one can truly say there is no place like the Baldwin. It's Nostalgic Grace are unsurpassed. The warm hardwood floors and the magnificent window's natural light seem to invoke a romantic tone on our subjects every time we look through the lens. When you need to be different and cry for elegance, you found the Baldwin. Anthony Duca www.ducastudio.com
