About The Mt. Washington Mill Dye House Wedding Venue

1340 Smith Ave, Baltimore, Maryland 21209

As you might have gathered from the name, Mt. Washington Mill Dye House is a former mill located in the heart of Baltimore. For years, the space served as an industrial mill until 1923, when it was bought by the Maryland Bolt and Nut Company. From then on, it produced metal fasteners, including rivets and screws. The factory ceased operations in 1989 and sat dormant, waiting for its next life. It found it when it was transformed into an event venue. The space is operated by the same company that operates Meadow Mill and The Winslow at Parker Metal. These experts know how to throw an unforgettable party, and they will bring their unique vision to your celebration!

Details of the Grounds

Whether you want an indoor or outdoor wedding, there’s a good chance the venue has the right spot for you! Many couples choose to utilize the industrial chic interior for their events. With this option, you will have access to the Dye House Room. The raw materials and the concrete floor look simply divine when dressed up for your ceremony! 

For outdoor weddings, you can use the Courtyard. This outdoor space provides an organic backdrop with the surrounding buildings. The yard here is lit up by bistro lights, and the ambiance of the water will elevate your ceremony. 

The Dye House Room is the favored spot for receptions. The high ceilings and open breezeways create the feeling of more space inside the already large room. Your guests will have plenty of space to mingle until it’s time to get out on the dance floor! 

If you would prefer an outdoor reception, the venue allows you to use the Courtyard for a cocktail reception. With this option, you’ll have waterfront views. If you’d like, you can set up lawn games for your guests to enjoy.
