Our Story

The Wadsworth Homestead has been a private home to six generations of Wadsworths and has played an integral role in American History. During the estate’s 212 year history, there have been many  celebrations and events, famous visitors, and lots of dining and dancing.  In 2011 the family decided to open the property to the public for weddings and events.   The house and grounds have recently been renovated to accommodate events for up to 300 people.

 

The Wadsworth Homestead retains most of its original furnishings, art and ephemera which makes this venue unique.  This setting creates an atmosphere of casual elegance as a backdrop to each and every event.   You will be invited to relax in this formal setting and be encouraged to feel at home.  Our goal is to deliver the level of attention and customer service needed to assure that your event becomes a magical part of your own family history.

 

The principal of this business, William Wadsworth has eleven years in the wedding and event business as proprietor of Sweet Briar Celebrations.  Over this time he has built a thriving business and a sterling reputation through his dedication to customer service and for his personal integrity.   Mr. Wadsworth brought his experience and depth of knowledge to the Wadsworth Homestead full time starting in 2014.  This venue will allow for a much broader range of services and dates including weeknights.
