Rivet: Canteen and Assembly is a historic wedding venue located in Pottstown, Pennsylvania. The property dates back to 1714 and was once the site of the town’s first iron forge, owned and operated by state founder William Penn. The land now houses a premier music and event venue that is decorated with period touches throughout. These vintage artefacts pay homage to the many industrial trades, such as metalworking, that allowed the United States to flourish. This building is the perfect spot for celebrations with a country, rustic, or industrial-chic theme.
