History
Built in 1871 as the Keystone Hotel, this four-story mansion was built by Joseph Miller Watson. The property was completely destroyed by a fire in 1887. Built up again in 1890 and designed by Frank Furness, this new building was inspired by a 16th-century French chateau. Eventually the hotel was foreclosed and the building was bought by the Baldwin School for girls, where it has been kept intact as The Baldwin School event venue known today.

    Amazing experience

    Baldwin School was the perfect setting for our daughter and son-in-law’s wedding in November. All the characteristics of the building - amazing staircases, wood burning fireplaces that were actually burning for the evening, and many other unique features inside and out - made it such a beautiful venue for the wedding. Having various spaces for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception was exactly what we were looking for. Being able to add our own DIY touch for decor, and being able to choose a caterer (we chose Brandywine Catering, a full service caterer, who also was amazing), made Baldwin School the perfect choice. Jane, who is Baldwin’s representative, was incredible and helped make the experience so easy and comfortable and relaxed. She was always there when needed during the preparations, rehearsal, and the whole wedding day. She went above and beyond to help for whatever we needed to make the day what our daughter and son-in-law were hoping for. Many of our guests are still talking about how great Baldwin School was for the wedding.

    Above and beyond

    We cannot recommend the Baldwin enough! Jane and the Baldwin team were absolutely incredible and made our day so special. The venue is so beautiful and is a wonderful place where you can put your own touches if you want, but is beautiful on it’s own. Jane personally went above and beyond to help us get ready for the day make our guests feel welcome and even helped us clean up after the reception...seriously she is the best!

    The Baldwin School is perfect to host any kind of event. Myself and seven other photographers created a collaborative styled shoot with other vendors and Jane Darnell at the the Baldwin School. The large spaces and natural light really gave us unlimited possibilities to have our visions come to life. It is difficult to find a venue that has a perfect balance between a beautiful outdoor and indoor space. The spaces are historic but versatile to make modern. I look forward to continuing to work with Jane and photograph at the Baldwin School for further events and weddings.

    Having grown up in the Main Line area and Photographed several weddings at the Baldwin, one can truly say there is no place like the Baldwin. It's Nostalgic Grace are unsurpassed. The warm hardwood floors and the magnificent window's natural light seem to invoke a romantic tone on our subjects every time we look through the lens. When you need to be different and cry for elegance, you found the Baldwin. Anthony Duca www.ducastudio.com
