The grounds at Riverdale Manor offer a wide selection of outdoor venue options, as well as a few indoor-outdoor venue options as well. If you have a larger guest list you could choose to say your “I do’s” in front of the large sycamore tree on the banks of the Conestoga River, or if a more intimate ceremony is your thing the Mill Foundation makes for a beautiful and unique option. The Mill Foundation is set on the banks of the Conestoga and features the remains of a pre-American Revolution mill. There is also the Hydrangea Spot that also offers up a few of the river and has amphitheater style seating.
