Brief History Of Wrights Mill Farm
Wrights Mill Farm is a Colonial New England Farm in the early 1700s. Photographers are fond of the venue because of the nostalgia and glamour that the farm offers.
It was in May 2016 when a fire damaged the Wrights Mill Farm’s kitchen and lodge. Events and weddings at the Wrights Mill Farm were booked two years in advance to accommodate them in the dire situation they faced.
The Pavilion, the open-air with rustic scenery kept the brides happy despite the incident.
Four years after the fire incident, Wrights Mill Farm was able to reopen with a better version of the lodge and offered a Bridal Suite. Curt Dubois and his team had a dream to rebuild better than ever.
Wrights Mill Farm is a picture-perfect setting for your big day. They also want you to taste the bygone era through their picturesque and rustic terrain.
A tour around the farm with the horse and the carriage will make you feel like Cinderella and her prince. The horse-drawn carriage will take you to the ceremony site after your guests are amassed.
