Woodlawn Manor offers a beautiful, pastoral setting for weddings, receptions, social events, life celebrations and business meetings. The Georgian-style Manor House, constructed in 1800, possesses a charming sense of history. The park is home to an authentic stone bank barn, historic log buildings and grazing horses. The Manor House, designated grounds and Woodlawn Tent are available to rent for social and business events and offer a rustic, elegant setting. Wedding ceremonies are often held in our Gazebo Garden, typically followed by indoor or outdoor cocktails and a tented reception. Business meetings are often held in the Manor House with the opportunity for an outdoor lunch and teambuilding activities on our expansive lawn.

The ice and snow of past winters have left the English boxwoods at Woodlawn Manor looking less than spectacular. In order to restore them to their former glory, we’ve planned a three-year rejuvenation program, aggressively pruning back one third of the living foliage each year. This will encourage new, healthy, aesthetically pleasing re-growth. We’ll work to restore the hedges as quickly as possible, but we have to move at nature’s pace...so please excuse the unsightly shrubs while we work hard to save these valuable, historic, beautiful boxwoods.
Update August, 2013 – After assessing the rejuvenation process, it has been determined that unfortunately, some of the boxwoods must be removed. They will be replaced with comparable sized plantings to match the current style of the English Garden.
