About Rock Ford Plantation

Make Your Wedding or Special Event An Historic Occasion!

Rock Ford Plantation is the circa 1794 home of the Revolutionary War General Edward Hand, a National Register historic site. The restored 18th-century barn and grounds at Rock Ford are available to rent for weddings and receptions, providing the most outstanding venue for historic barn weddings in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

Situated on 33 picturesque acres surrounded by gardens, woodlands, the Conestoga River, and General Hand's mansion, our barn can seat up to 110 guests while larger groups can be accommodated with an adjacent outdoor tent. The barn has charming rustic features such as handcrafted colonial-style lanterns, original hand-hewn beams, and stone interior walls while boasting modern amenities such as a separate catering area with a microwave, commercial stainless steel refrigerator and sink, heating and air conditioning, dimmer switch lighting control, and men's and ladies' restrooms. Our 18th-century style bar is perfect for serving drinks to guests.

Rock Ford is a sophisticated venue that provides couples with a dream-come-true location by offering a picturesque setting for the exchange of vows and the celebration of that commitment. Rock Ford is available to exclusively one event per weekend, providing couples with maximum time and flexibility to prepare for and enjoy your special day.

If you are looking to customize every detail of your wedding, definitely take a look at Rock Ford! We were on a tight budget, and though the venue took up the biggest chunk of that budget, we were able to pick every other vendor and detail of our wedding, and DIYed most of it! Nancy was very helpful in answering all of our questions, and making sure she could accommodate all of our requests to the best of her ability. Though some of our older family members had some trouble getting around the property and using the tight restrooms, everyone raved about how beautiful and unique the venue was. Being able to set up the day before and tear down the day after our wedding was an invaluable option, and we used every minute of that time to transform the barn and tent to our liking. This venue was perfect for us, because we were looking to save some money by planning and decorating everything ourselves, and we wanted the flexibility to make it unique to us, but if you aren't willing to take on all those details (or hire someone to do it for you), it might not be for you.

What a perfect place for a wedding!! The venue provided tables and chairs, they aloud ample time for set up and take down, without all the restrictions of many of the other venues. The staff (Nancy) is there if needed but aloud me to function without her hovering over my every move. If you are planning a DIY/Pinterest type wedding this place is for you.

If you are looking for a unique location with real historical flair, check out the Rockford Plantation. I really like that there are multiple locations on the property, so you can have a farmhouse backdrop for the ceremony, inside dinner, and dancing under a tent. It is just outside of the city, but you really feel like you are in a spacious rolling farmland. The last time I was there to DJ a wedding, a group of deer actually came out of the trees during the ceremony and stayed in sight through the beginning of the cocktail hour.

Beautiful location to photograph at. The staff is always friendly, helpful and very flexible with scheduling photo shoots when you call ahead. It is one of my personal favorite places to take photos!
