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

One visit to this venue will, and you will conclude like we did that this is a perfect place for a wedding. The small village of Yellow Springs is quiet and filled with natural beauty. The Washington itself is a well preserved, historic building with a specail historic charm to it. We had one of our ceremonies outdoors, and there were at least three gorgeous locations for us to choose from for this, but we were relieved that they also have an indoor space that could easily fit all our guests if the weather was bad. The reception hall could fit up to 150 guests, but we topped off at 130 which allowed for an ample sized dance floor. The staff at the Washington were very pleasant and helpful before and on the day of the wedding at helping us plan our wedding day, giving us access at a reasonable time day of, and serving as de facto wedding coordinators for our ceremonies. We were looking for a bucolic or farm setting for our wedding, and this fit the bill and was one of the cheaper venues we came across. What was also attractive is that they had relationships with multiple caterers to give us a better chance to find one in our price range. There is plenty of parking on site for guests, but it is accessible by a motor coach too. We chose a late October date, and the many trees on site provided an amazing colorful backdrop for our event.
