Nestled in Columbia, Maryland, Historic Oakland is an elegant manor house style venue for weddings and events. Over two centuries old, it offers a storied setting for couples to begin the next chapter of their lives or where you can celebrate any type of milestone event. Oakland is situated on a large estate brimming with trees and seasonal florals which adds to the mansion’s stately ambience. Between the antique charms and lush grounds, our clients can celebrate in memorable splendor.

Facilities and Capacity

There are multiple areas throughout Historic Oakland that can be transformed into event space. For weddings or other social events, Historic Oakland can accommodate up to 172 guests to come together to mark a milestone moment.

The main ballroom features crystal chandeliers and wall scones and is a soft tone that will go with any color palette. Here, 80 guests can gather for a banquet-style dining experience. When including the Veranda with the Ballroom, one can accommodate up to 112 guests. The Ballroom opens onto the Veranda through a series of glass doors. The Veranda is well suited to cocktail hour using Historic Oakland’s high-top cocktail tables. The Foyer is a flexible space and is often used for dancing the night away.

Ceremonies can take place in the beautifully manicured grounds or gardens. Or, for those who may want an indoor ceremony, our sunny Magnolia can accommodate up to 80 guests.

Outside, larger weddings or events with up to 172 guests can be held in the tented area. Historic Oakland’s tent provides the perfect space for your guests to gather and celebrate your significant milestones together.

Additional smaller rooms throughout Historic Oakland can be used for dressing rooms or as the backdrop for engagement parties, showers, and rehearsal dinners.

Wonderful location, excellent staff

The was perfect for our intimate wedding. They were very detailed and professional. The place was already decorated for winter, but she worked with our decorator, so that the decor could match our wedding colors.

Beautiful facility -- professional staff

The facility is excellent for smaller weddings of 74 or less. An outdoor ceremony is recommended if the weather permits because the ballroom on the second floor is not handicapped accessible. For a caterer I highly recommend Tino's Italian Bistro -- they are excellent!!!
