Your history starts here when you say "I do" in our exquisitely rehabilitated Civil War-era Naval Hospital, which was commissioned by President Lincoln in 1864.

Whether you'd like an outdoor wedding ceremony in our beautifully landscaped gardens, an indoor ceremony in our light-filled rooms with 14-foot high ceilings and 8-foot windows, or something in between, your wedding and reception will be a timeless, romantic celebration to last the ages. The unique elegance of Hill Center and its exquisite campus comes together with today's amenities to give you contemporary convenience with historic charm.
