About Us

Located in Baltimore, Maryland, 1840s Plaza is a historic wedding venue with 13 gorgeous rooms and suites at the 1840s Carrollton Inn, a boutique hotel right outside of Little Italy. The property offers a tranquil courtyard garden with bistro lights, perfect for an outdoor ceremony, while still having three indoor levels for both ceremonies and receptions.

Facilities and Capacity

Once you encounter the stately front gate of the charming venue, it opens to reveal a tranquil garden courtyard that leads to the boutique hotel, the 1840s Carrollton Inn. You’ll see three stories of architectural excellence fronted by a historical red-iron facade that rises before guests majestically. From first glance, the 1840s Plaza serves as the ideal setting for your picture-perfect wedding. As you and your guests are swept away into the grace and beauty of an era past, life and excitement will glow through the many sparkling windows. The three floors of the picturesque Fava Building are all available for your special day. From the Latin-inspired first-floor 1840s cabaret-style to the second floor 1840s city-lite-theme, the unique decor will create a charming atmosphere for the joyous occasion. The second floor also features authentic Baltimore vignettes, historical white tower diner, and a lounge-like style. In addition to those two spaces, the 1840s Plaza boasts an elegant 1840s ballroom with sweeping city views, hardwood dancefloor, crystal chandeliers, and hand-painted murals of historic Baltimore. The ballroom is one of the most sophisticated and unique in the Inner Harbor area. No matter the vision or budget, there is a fitting venue for your day.

  • We chose to get married at the 1840's Plaza back in October of 2017. We fell in love with the venue the minute we saw it. It's so unique and has so much character to it that we couldn't pass it up. The hotel accommodations were fantastic, the presentation of the courtyard and all three floors of the main building were fantastic, I couldn't have pictured a more beautiful wedding. The staff is truly the highlight of the venue. Stasia Cruz and Lauren Spivey are the best at what they do. We worked closely with Lauren throughout the planning process as well as Stasia on the day of/day after. I couldn't have asked for a more flexible, helpful, kind, and organized group of people to assist us. They truly helped make my wedding day as special as it could have possibly been. I would recommend the 1840's Plaza for any couples looking for a special Baltimore City venue, and I certainly would recommend working with Lauren and Stasia.
