The Foundry sits on over 900 private acres located in the beautiful Piedmont countryside just 30 minutes outside of Richmond, Virginia. One of the most naturally stunning venues in Virginia, the rolling terrain, native vegetation, and scattered rock outcroppings combine with the meandering banks of Fine Creek to create the perfect backdrop for celebrations. Combined with a stately 3,600 sq ft Clubhouse featuring an impressive stone exterior, warm hardwoods, and tented patio, the venue is ideal for both small and large scale weddings.

The Clubhouse

The Clubhouse was originally built in the early 1800s and has since undergone a complete renovation to feature modern amenities. The impressive stone facade has been restored to its original state for a look of understated elegance. The Clubhouse features an old world European style with original hand-carved fireplace, detailed mouldings, and warm hardwoods. Adjacent to the Clubhouse, The Terrace offers accommodations for larger parties. This 30' x 60' permanent bricked floored, tented space is surrounded by meticulously maintained landscaping with views of Fine Creek.
