This site’s earliest recorded history dates back to 1549, when the Catawba tribe first discovered the property’s two mineral springs. In the 1700s, five cottages sat on the property surrounding a small courtyard. The only cottage still standing today was renovated in 2003 and serves as the Special Event & Spa. Resorts were then built on the property during the 1800s, except for the period during the Civil War, at which point the site’s buildings were used as hospitals for the wounded soldiers. Post-war it once again became a booming resort and, in 1869, began welcoming distinguished guests from Washington, D.C. such as President Roosevelt, General Robert E. Lee, General Stonewall Jackson and others.

A perfect day!
Perfect would be the word to describe our big day and it’s a huge thanks to the staff and vendors at Historic Jordan Springs. We took advantage of pretty much all their services and boy did it all come together perfectly! The venue was gorgeous (guests said it was the prettiest and smoothest wedding they’ve ever been to), the food was amazing (and plenty), the cake was... have I used the word perfect yet? The guests LOVED the music the DJ played (we said no country and left the rest to him), the photographer knew the property and was as efficient as possible to get us back to the party while still taking a lot of photos.Sent on 11/06/2018
I forgot the iPhone headphone jack adapter for the first dance but didn’t even start to feel stressed because I new Colt, the man behind our perfect night, would make sure everything would turn out... perfect.
We loved everything about our experience. All the staff was amazing. Colt really knows his events and does everything in his power to allow you to just have the most amazing experience ever.
Thank you, Historic Jordan Springs!

HJS was amazing!
I had my wedding here this weekend and let me say, WOW! Colt did amazing with everything. He and his staff are so organized and efficient, but so fun. Colt literally made my entire day perfect and took amazing care of me and my husband, as well as our guests and bridal party. The venue itself is stunning, if you are looking for elegance, fairy tale, traditional, rustic, or anything in between, this venue would be perfect for it all. The beautiful lining down the reception hall and ceremony chapel, and the bar is just as incredible! The food was amazing and they even upgraded our food and added a courtesy entree, because they are literally the best ever. Everyone at the wedding was raving about how amazing the food was and then the cake was just as good! I was extremely last minute on my cake design to Colt, which he still was able to have the dream cake of mine made, and honestly, he added a few details like flowers and made it better than I had imagined. The DJ did amazing, so I highly recommend booking a DJ through HJS! He had the party going all night and had everyone out of the dance floor having fun. I also highly recommend booking photography through HJS as our photographers and videographer were all amazing and made sure to take as many pictures as possible so I will be able to remember everything. Now the final person I want to say was actually a 10 star review, Colt! If you are nervous, you aren’t sure what you need to do, what steps you need to take, or someone to bounce a decor idea off of, this is your man! Colt handed me an amazing binder at the start of this process with a check list for the year or so of planning to make sure we were pacing ourselves and getting things done on time. Colt was always professional but was also very funny, which helped me a ton! Colt ended up having to do my bustle on my dress because none of my girls could get it done with their nails. He made sure I had my favorite wine the entire night as well, even after the bar tab ran out. Colt and his team had the entire wedding down and boxed for me to take my stuff that night, shoot they had it down and boxed within like 30 minutes. I cannot thank Historic Jordan Springs and Colt for all they did for my husband and I on our big day. And if I ever have another big event to throw, I will be calling HJS!Sent on 09/02/2019
I am a Non-Denominational Minister/ Wedding Officiant and I had the opportunity to officiate a marriage service at Historic Jordan Springs a few years ago. All I can say is WOW!!!! The Bride and Groom could not have chosen a more perfect venue for their winter wedding. The inside was decorated beyond beautifully and upon entering the door it felt as though I was entering a mystical fairy land. The staff was accommodating, the food was excellent and as an officiant, I was overwhelmed with the kindness and sincere professionalism that was so much a part of my experience. I highly recommend Historic Jordan Springs and hope to be able to officiate at their venue at another time in the future.
