Frommer’s Lists Wadsworth Mansion in top 50
Middletown, CT. The Wadsworth Mansion was listed as a “Best Place to Get Married in all 50 States” by Frommers.com this July. Frommer’s selected one venue from each state for this distinguished list. Some venues were selected for their stunning locations, others were selected for their beautiful architecture. Executive Director, Deborah Moore, was delighted when she received an email from Frommer’s saying that the Wadsworth Mansion had been selected. ‘We are honored, as the Biltmore in Asheville, NC is included as well as the Grand Canyon and the beaches of Maui. We don’t have beautiful beaches or mountains, but the Olmsted designed 100 acre estate is very private and the Beaux-arts style mansion is beautiful. Couples can exchange their vows on a 700’ lawn and can dance on the terrace under the stars. I don’t think there is a more beautiful place in Connecticut to get married.” http://www.frommers.com/slideshows/848035-where-to-get-married-the-best-weddings-in-all-50-states#slide849489
The Mansion hosts 70 weddings a year as well as other celebrations. It is owned by the City of Middletown and was restored in 1999.
