Elkridge Furnace Inn Wedding
One of our favorite outdoor ceremony, wedding reception locations is the Elkridge Furnace Inn.
The Inn holds a unique niche in Maryland history. Nestled on the Patapsco River, it was first established as a tavern in 1744. An iron smelting furnace was added around 1750.
The complex itself comprises approximately 16 acres in the eastern corner of Howard County. It is graced by beautiful Linden, Holly, and Magnolia trees. The dramatic height of the main structure offers vistas of the Patapsco River from the second and third floors. A feeling of peacefulness exudes from the spacious patio and tent as well as the river overlook. The entrance to the main house features fine transitional Federal/Greek Revival detailing and consists of double leaf doors with five panes each flanked by narrow sidelights within a broad architrave.
Today, The Elkridge Furnace Inn houses an elegant restaurant, as well as a gourmet catering company specializing in weddings, corporate events, and celebrations.
