Imagine your ceremony at Kings Mills on the patio overlooking a waterfall—or how about cocktail hour on The Cove’s pavilion above the creek? Not only does Kings Mills provide waterfall backdrops for your big day but it’s also historic.
The Wood Mill and The Stone Mill at Kings Mills date back to the 1700s. These mills now house several of the venue’s ballrooms following repair and restoration by The Kings family to its original pristine state by Amish craftsmen and expert stone masons.
