Located in Honey Brook, Pennsylvania, Brandywine Manor House is a circa 1740 wedding and event venue. Situated in the heart of beautiful Chester County, Pennsylvania, this stunning estate carries centuries of history. This property was home to one of the first grist and sawmills, and this milling lasted into the 19th century. The year 1740 saw the original log house being converted into the home it is today. This property's narrative also intertwines with Forks of the Brandywine Presbyterian Church. The grave of James Mackelduff, the earliest owner of the land, can be found at the church's cemetery. In 1984, Dr. and Mrs. Gordon Eck purchased the farm and restored the property. In the year 2002, Brandywine Manor House held its first wedding ceremony and reception. Many more weddings took place over the following eight years. After suffering a house fire, the property was again rebuilt and renovated. Over the next few years, various additions were made, including the rehoming of a 1794 barn on the estate. Still family-owned and -operated, this destination is meticulously cared for and offers pristine grounds for a beautiful celebration.
