Have the wedding of your dreams, and the time of your life!

Rentals

Oliver's Carriage House was built in the early 1800s as the barn and stables for a large private estate in Howard County, Maryland. Since the mid-1970s, it has been the home of Kittamaqundi Community Church, an ecumenical Christian community in the heart of Columbia's Town Center.

Inside the building, you'll find the original stone walls, exposed wooden beams and grand fireplace. Outside, the tree-lined grounds, colorful gardens and landscaped brick patio add to its historic charm.

We think the Carriage House will impress your guests and add a touch of enchantment to your special day!
