About Historic Oakland

Nestled in Columbia, Maryland, Historic Oakland is a mansion and elegant venue for weddings and events. Over two centuries old, it offers a storied setting for couples to begin the next chapter of their lives. It is situated on a large estate brimming with trees which adds to the mansion’s stately ambience. Between the antique charms and lush grounds, partners can celebrate their love and commitment in memorable splendor.

Facilities and Capacity

There are multiple areas throughout Historic Oakland that can be transformed into event spaces. Up to 180 people can come together to mark a couple’s milestone moment, paving the way for soon-to-be newlyweds to organize galas of all kinds. Ceremonies can take place in the idyllic and whimsical gardens. After, guests can move to the ballroom on the main floor. Here, 80 individuals can gather for a banquet-style dining experience. Food, beverages, entertainment, and other setups can be placed in the Foyer or on the Veranda. The main ballroom opens up onto the Veranda through a series of glass doors. This space is well suited to cocktail receptions or for the bar and when added to the ballroom, brings the capacity up to 100 people. Its movable walls allow the option for creating an open-air setting. The Foyer is a flexible space that can also be added to the main ballroom. Guests can enjoy cocktails here or it can be used for dancing later in the evening. Moving to the second floor, couples will encounter the Magnolia Room. Illuminated by natural light, the room can seat up to 64 guests in a banquet-style setting. Outside, large weddings with 180 people can be held in the tented area. From here, loved ones can enjoy the festivities while taking in the picturesque property. Additional smaller rooms throughout the mansion can be used for dressing rooms or as the backdrop for engagement parties, showers, and rehearsal dinners.

Services Offered

Historic Oakland’s team provides a number of services, including facility management, to help you realize your wedding dreams. Couples can make use of the property’s selection of round, banquet, and cocktail tables along with the indoor and ceremony chairs. The ballroom and Foyer are both outfitted with sound systems for greater convenience. Couples have the ability to pick their own caterer, who can use the commercial warming kitchen to prepare dishes.
