    An absolutely perfect day!

    The Red Cross Building at the Historic Trust was the perfect venue for our wedding of 60. The event staff was prompt, easy to communicate with, and very professional. The Red Cross Building is historic and beautiful, and the perfect backdrop for the romantic vibe we were going for. There was plenty of parking right across from the building. THe bridal suite was classy and perfect for our wedding party. We were gifted with beautiful weather so we could also use the patio. The multiple french doors opened wide to the fresh air and sunshine. Our wedding day was perfect!

    The Historic Trust's reply:

    Thank you so much for the wonderful review, Katie! :) I had such a great time working with you and couldn't be happier to hear that you had an amazing day. Thank you for choosing to celebrate here with us at The Trust. :)

    I had my wedding at the Marshall house and it was a wonderful experience. They were extremely helpful always answering my questions and accommodated all my requests. It's a beautiful home which has been immaculately preserved for 127 years. Filled with antiques and art of the Victorian era. Basically a mini museum. And the best part was they were 40% of the cost of other similar venues. Extremely affordable being that it is federal property not local or private that keeps the cost down. I love our national park system!
