Originally built around 1750, The Washington at Historic Yellow Springs has served as a colonial inn and tavern when the village of Yellow Springs was a fashionable spa. During the American Revolution, General Washington slept there when he was visiting the soldiers who were convalescing in the Yellow Springs hospital he commissioned in the village in 1777. During the 19th century, the building was used as a dining facility and dormitory for the orphans of Civil War Soldiers and the early 20th century saw this wonderful building used as a dining hall and dorm for the young artists of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.

Love love LOVE!! This location checked ALL our boxes! Multiple options to choose from for ceremony locations, a rainy day ceremony spot that would not interfere with the reception. A location SO GORGEOUS that very minimal decorating needed to be done! A flexible venue coordinator, and the ability to bring in all our own vendors! Our guests rave about the beauty! We would recommend this place to everyone! Thank you Caitlin and Maeve!Sent on 07/17/2018

Couldn't have asked for more!
My husband and I couldn't be happier with The Washington! We booked our wedding two years out so we could be sure that we'd have our choice of vendors and we have no regrets there. Caitlin was awesome to work with, and the venue itself is fantastic - there's history, beauty, and (maybe most importantly) options in case of inclement weather! We ended up being able to have our ceremony outside, but after weeks of rainy weather it was so nice to not worry about what we'd do if it did rain on our day.
The Washington provides a list of preferred caterers you can work with, and our choice - Feastivities - was AWESOME. Three weeks have past and guests are still telling me how much they loved the food! The staff was super nice and attentive as well. I can't recommend The Washington and Feastivities highly enough!

The Yellowsprings was everything I could have every dreamed of. The space alone is beautiful but you can add your own flare if you’d like with decor and catering. Caitlin helped coordinate the day of and because of her the ceremony went off without a hitch. We were able to fit a 6 piece band, and 125 guests with plenty of room for dancing. 10/10 would recommend!!
