History
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.

    Incredibly beautiful in so many ways!

    We fell in love with The Washington at HYS the minute we toured it. It was the perfect setting for our wedding in so many ways and working with Caitlin, our venue coordinator, made it even better. Caitlin is the sweetest person to work with and she always answered all our questions right away. We did not have to worry about anything with Caitlin being our venue coordinator. We wanted to be surrounded by nature, gardens, foliage, rustic charm, and we wanted our venue to have a feeling of intimacy, character and history to it. We also wanted to have our ceremony and reception at the same location. The Washington offered all of this in addition to three outdoor ceremony locations that we could choose from (and the indoor space for rainy days was not too shabby either). The grounds of The Washington were simply beautiful no matter where you looked. It also offered a beautiful, spacious bridal suite and groom's lounge. We cannot express how perfect The Washington was for our wedding day.

    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!
