Old School Baptist Meeting House
Whether you are planning a summer, spring, fall or winter wedding, you will experience a truly memorable ceremony in the Historical Society of the Town of Warwick’s charming Old School Baptist Meeting House. The Meeting House has been an icon of this historic part of the lower Hudson River Valley since 1810 and the site of many weddings and ceremonies. You may have seen it in the film, “In and Out” starring Kevin Kline and Tom Selleck.
Magnificently situated in the center of this historic village, the Meeting House is the perfect setting for a sun-filled daytime or evening ceremony.
The Meeting House seats 200 people on the ground floor and in the gallery that runs the length of its three sides. Constructed in 1810, the Meeting House was designed by Deacon John Foght and built by Azariah Ketchum. Above the unique wineglass pulpit rests an emblem of peace depicted by a golden dove bearing an olive branch that was carved by Deacon Fought. The magnificent steeple is 97’ high.
The Old School Baptist Meeting House sits atop a stately knoll in Lewis Park, a perfect venue for a tented wedding reception. Consider this beautiful and historic church for your ceremony.
