Choose Historic Acres of Hershey for a seamless and beautiful wedding experience

Choosing Historic Acres for our wedding was the best choice we could have made! From the start, we knew we were supported and any questions that I had were answered quickly and with detailed information. The venue itself is beautiful and is the complete package. Using the beautiful farmhouse the night before for me and my bridesmaids was a great choice as we were able to wake up stress free not needing to travel to the venue early in the morning. Katie and Melodie were so helpful throughout the entire process and took care of all the details, especially the ones we didn't even think about. We would highly recommend considering Historic Acres for your wedding. It's a choice you won't regret!

Perfect venue

This venue was beautiful. We looked at so many when deciding and we couldn’t be happier using historic acres. They were so great about getting back to me on every little question I had. The day of was BEAUTIFUL we had so many compliments on the venue and all the photo ops they have. If I could do it over again I’d still choose this venue
