Originally built around 1750, The Washington at Historic Yellow Springs has served as a colonial inn and tavern when the village of Yellow Springs was a fashionable spa. During the American Revolution, General Washington slept there when he was visiting the soldiers who were convalescing in the Yellow Springs hospital he commissioned in the village in 1777. During the 19th century, the building was used as a dining facility and dormitory for the orphans of Civil War Soldiers and the early 20th century saw this wonderful building used as a dining hall and dorm for the young artists of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.

  • The Washington at Historic Yellow Springs and working with Cait was a phenomenal experience that I would choose again in a heartbeat. The HYS is a beautiful venue with a vintage, classic, boho like vibe. The grounds and the buildings are beautiful and it was a perfect day working with a perfect team. Cait answered all my questions and concerns and was so patient and helpful with the whole process. I would 10/10 recommend this venue and working with Cait.
