Our History

The Kilburn Mill was one of the premiere cotton mills in New Bedford. Built in 1903, the mill boasts some of the city’s most beautiful views — overlooking Clark's Cove at the beginning of what is called New Bedford’s peninsula.

We recently undertook a complete restoration of our 21,000 square foot event space. We brought life back into the mill while leaving the original hardwood floors, exposed wood beams, brick exterior walls and 13 foot windows, which provide stunning views of the Cove. It is the perfect mix of industrial chic making it the perfect venue to say "I do".
