Facility Rental

Fairmount Water Works, designated a National Historic Landmark in 1976, is the perfect spot for your company or organization’s next event! This 200+ year old neoclassical building is situated on the banks of the Schuylkill River providing a venue that is steeped in history and unique ambiance. Multiple spaces are available and can be creatively configured to meet your needs, whether it is a staff training, board meeting, retreat or team building day. Rent one room or rent the whole building!

While here, let us offer you a tour of the history of our site, or tell you about the research we are doing on freshwater mussels and visit the Mussel Hatchery, or for the young members of your group (or the young at heart!), let us offer you a hands-on experience exploring a relevant watershed issue.

Please note that our facility does not lend itself to events with a dance floor or sit-down dining (such as wedding receptions, etc.). If you are looking to use the space formerly known as the Water Works Restaurant for personal events and celebrations, please contact Cescaphe Event Group. at 215-238-5750.
