Located at 331 Water Street, in the heart of Riverwalk Landing, sits the Freight Shed—Yorktown's premiere waterfront venue. Built in 1935 by the National Park Service after a tropical storm destroyed much of the waterfront, the original building was used as a terminal for Baltimore steamships until 1952. Then, it was remodeled and served as a post office. Today, this historic building can be rented for weddings, meetings, and special events!
Weddings: Exchange Your Vows with a View
Nestled along the banks of the York River, the Freight Shed boasts stunning waterfront views, and makes for a beautiful backdrop to capture your special day.
