Last Chance: Tie the Knot at the Trenton Historical Museum

The most memorable day of your life just got more memorable.

One of the most beautiful and interesting spots in Trenton just became a wedding destination.

For one day only, the will be available for wedding ceremonies and renewed vows on July 14, during the Trenton Mid-Summer Festival.

The historic property has much to offer aesthetically and Ruth Ann Brewer, a museum caretaker, said newlyweds can expect the highest quality service on their big day.

For $200, the ceremony includes:

  • Seating for up to 25 guests
  • Minister or the mayor of Trenton
  • Traditional wedding decorations
  • Punch and cupcakes

The ceremony would take place in the backyard of the historical museum near a storied bell that was built in 1903 for the then Presbyterian Church, now the Assembly of God.

Members of the church commissioned the bell, but when it was delivered they realized it was too large for the belfry they'd built and decided to turn the bell upside down and use it as a flower pot, according to Brewer.

The bell was brought to the museum in 2003 and now hangs from a small wooden belfry, of the appropriate size, behind the museum.

Brewer said she has no intention of returning the bell to it's former capacity as a flower pot.

Those looking to get married or renew their vows should contact Ruth Ann Brewer 734-676-4952 before June 20.

Do you think the Trenton Historical Museum is a good place for a wedding?

Please try this! This is another way to support the museum, which could be in jeopardy of lack of funds for its future in Trenton!!! Do what you can to support!
