Heavy-hearted we decided to cancel all weddings and other event bookings up until and including July 2020 (full refund provided as well as "first dibs" on a 2021 date in case you decide to reschedule your wedding). The safety of our guests, visitors and staff is most important to us and we'll need a little bit more time to have all the measures in place to provide for a safe and joyful memory at McLean Mill Historic Park. Thank you for your patience and for understanding.
