History

The center was built in 1910 and operated as a cotton mill, just one of many textile mills located in New Bedford. The textile industry in New Bedford grew quickly and brought in considerable wealth. Unfortunately, the industry declined just as quickly, leaving behind many grand structures. Today, many of these mills still sit unused and in disrepair. Kilburn Mill was one of these until its recent renovation. The Kilburn Event Center has created a beautiful industrial space that still celebrates its historic surroundings. It’s kept its original features, tall windows, wooden floors, reclaimed brick, and hand-hewn wooden beams.

Location

The Kilburn Event Center offers couples a convenient setting for a wedding. It’s located just off Route 18 in New Bedford, minutes from Route 6, I-195, and Route 140.
