Graeme Park (pronounced GRAM) is a 42-acre historic park, featuring the Keith House, the only surviving residence of a Colonial Pennsylvania Governor. The house itself is a National Historic Landmark and has remained virtually intact since the late 18th century with original woodwork and paint finishes in some of the rooms. The house was also home to Elizabeth Graeme Fergusson, who famously hosted her literary “Attic Evenings.”

Graeme Park’s construction began around 1722, and was established for Provincial Governor of Pennsylvania, Sir William Keith. Initially referred to as “Fountain Low” because it had a numerous amount of natural springs, Its name changed to Graeme Park when Gov. Keith's son-in-law, Dr. Thomas Graeme, purchased the property in 1739. It was originally used as a summer home and was not only known for being a great stone mansion, but also a “long house” for servants, a barn, a malt house, and several other buildings spread across 1,700 acres. Often passing by the house on the carriage path, family guests would walk through the vast and beautiful gardens laced around the mansion. Almost 300 years have passed since Graeme Park’s construction, however little has changed since the Graemes called Graeme Park home, and in regards to the mansion’s original design, a few pieces of the original furniture can be found at Graeme Park.

The staff at Graeme Park were very helpful and the venue itself is a great place for an outdoor wedding. It has a rustic, magical feel. Plenty of beautiful areas to take pictures and it is a one stop shop for your wedding. We had our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception in different areas on the 42 acre property. I am absolutely happy that we picked this venue.

Beautiful venue at a reasonable price. This is definitely a nice alternative to a traditional wedding venue. But be aware that the staff at Graeme Park helped themselves to appetizers, dinner, and dessert, uninvited during the event. They also tried to rush us out at the end of the night in an umprofessional manner. Open Aire Affairs who handles the actual tent rental was less than helpful in remedying this.

Graeme Park is a beautiful place to get married if you're looking for a low-key outdoor venue. The Open Aire Affairs staff that contracts with them is helpful and tries hard to save you money if they can. They were happy to accommodate our requests (including changing the seating set up a few hours before the ceremony), and great at making sure the facilities were clean and set up how we needed! All in all a beautiful place to hold a wedding!
