About

On WeddingWire since 2014

Historic Acres of Hershey is an award-winning wedding venue located in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania, that provides services throughout the Central Pennsylvania area. The property, which was once a working farm, features a mid-19th century farmhouse, which is the perfect setting for an elegant wedding ceremony or reception. This venue specializes in rustic weddings and has been operating since 2015.

Facilities and Capacity

Historic Acres of Hershey can accommodate up to 260 wedding guests in its indoor and outdoor event spaces. The property sits on seven acres and boasts a large pond, a rustic barn, an open pavilion, several multi-function banquet rooms, and a brick farmhouse. The pavilion is open for events all year round and is climate-controlled for comfort no matter the season. Couples can begin their day in the on-site get-ready suite, offering an elegant and private space to prepare in peace. Parking is available for guests who drive to the venue. The farmhouse can be used for overnight accommodation, and can comfortably sleep nine guests across its four bedrooms.

A number of event rental items are available for to-be-weds to use as they see fit, including mobile bars, farm tables, bistro lighting, outdoor games, and a faux greenery wall.

    This venue has it ALL!

    Historic Acres of Hershey makes for the most magical wedding EVER. The landscaping is pristine, the farmhouse is beautiful, the ceremony area in front of the pond is enchanting, and the reception hall built of beautiful glass walls and striking wood beams is so vast and magical! Even better, the staff at this venue is so friendly, professional, and thorough! My husband and I got married here back in May of 2022 and our wedding guests are STILL raving about how wonderful the venue was. Our guests (and us!) loved that there were so many beautiful spots throughout the venue for guests to socialize all day and all evening, each area with the most perfect photo backdrops. This venue truly checked all of our boxes (and then some!) making our wedding day so flawless and fun. Love, love, love!
