At Millstad Center, we want you to enjoy our historic Harford County facilities. Since each wedding event is personal and unique,
we will do our best to help you plan your special day to meet or exceed your expectations.
In addition to the Great Hall reception facility, wedding ceremonies may be held outdoors in secluded meadows or open fields.
The grounds of the venue sits on over 40 acres of property that can be used for pictures so you can be sure you get the
right background you are looking for.
The property's history dates back to the late 1600's when it formed part of the 500-acre Dunkale estate. The current Millstad grounds still bear evidence of these older building foundations, including the estate entrance and spring house.
Over the next two hundred years, Dunkale was divided into smaller parcels, and by the mid-1800's, the property that is now Millstad was a working farm. The Great Hall dates from this period, originally a bank barn with thick stone walls, a trussed roof, narrow slit windows, and the cast-iron sounding bell.
By 1908, the property had ceased to be a working farm and became instead a place for children's education and recreation. One acre nearest to Whitaker Mill Road housed the Dunkale School, a one-room schoolhouse that in 1919 boasted 20 students. The Children's Fresh Air Society of Baltimore established a camp on the remaining acreage, offering city children a summer holiday in the countryside.
Today, weddings in The Great Hall at The Millstad Center can feel the rustic essence the second you walk in the door.
The centerpiece of Millstad is The Great Hall, whose old stone walls echo the history of the county and play host to wedding receptions, dances, meetings and other types of indoor events.
The Great Hall is approximately 2,400 square feet and accommodates up to 220 people in a sit down table setting. A Electric Lift in The Great Hall for anyone needng a lift upstairs. Alongside The Great Hall is a beautiful 35x x40 paver patio.
Wagon wheel chandeliers add a rustic touch to the barn-like
feel of the room.
Two Bathrooms in the Great Hall are fully stocked for your event as well as two more on the patio for your guest.
The Great Hall has a commercial kitchen for use by caterers with a walk-in freezer/refrigerator, two ranges and a food preparation area. Round tables, chairs, etc. are available on site. We recommend a site visit with your caterer to ensure a flawless event.
Plenty of onsite parking for all.
