Hamilton House Gardens
Open June through October
Historic New England invites you to host your wedding in the beautiful Hamilton House Gardens, overlooking Salmon Falls River in South Berwick, Maine.
Hamilton House was built in 1785 by Colonel Jonathan Hamilton, a prominent merchant. The gardens we appreciate so much today were created by Mrs. Emily Tyson, who purchased the property with her stepdaughter Elizabeth in 1898. Encouraged by their friend Sarah Orne Jewett, they restored the house and landscape. The dramatic setting of the house and gardens makes this site a beautiful natural location for an event.
Hamilton House gardens can accommodate ceremonies and receptions for up to 100 guests.
2015 Saturday availability is outlined below. Please know we have wonderful Friday and Sunday options as well.
2015 Saturday dates include:
- June 6, 13, and 27
- July 11, 18, and 25
- August 15 and 22

Call now to schedule your visit to Hamilton House Gardens or join us for our next open house! On Saturday July 26th we will be onsite to answer your questions and show off the property. Please join us from 10am to noon or 2pm to 4pm.
