Description:

Located at 331 Water Street, in the heart of Riverwalk Landing, sits the Freight Shed—Yorktown's premiere waterfront venue. Built in 1935 by the National Park Service after a tropical storm destroyed much of the waterfront, the original building was used as a terminal for Baltimore steamships until 1952. Then, it was remodeled and served as a post office.

 

The current facility, extensively renovated in 2005 in conjunction with the opening of Riverwalk Landing, is approximately 1,950 square feet with a large brick plaza on the riverside of the building. It has hosted many functions including weddings, reunions, parties, banquets, concerts, and business meetings and lectures.

 

The gorgeous views of the York River, coupled with stunning sunsets, provide breathtaking backdrops for the photographer on your big day!

 

The Freight Shed can accommodate seated ceremonies and receptions of up to 130 people. Beautiful glass, arched doors open up to Riverwalk Plaza, which offers an additional tented area that can be used for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and dancing. The tent is included in your venue rental Apr-Oct, with additional rental options available outside that time frame.
