"Booked my wedding and reception here. Very fair price and beautiful, as well as, historic."

"Went to Birthday party there. The house we rented was well equipped and in good condition. Pretty historical building and had 2 big picnic tables outside. Loved that the building was air conditioned which I didn’t expect. We were given several options of buildings to rent. This is a great place to have your parties at, due to the charitable aspect of it. This Village is a historical jewel for Beaver County and should be supported to preserve it for future generations."
