Our Story

Our History: Established in 2017 as a wedding venue, Historic Venue 1902 is a historic schoolhouse in Sanford, FL. Located just north of Orlando. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. What is now Central Florida’s premier wedding venue, was once the Sanford Grammar School.

Our venue was restored to perfection. With many venues in the Orlando market, we saw a need for a timeless, unique wedding venue option. We knew we had to have the perfect outdoor ceremony location, all white walls, and incredible private suites for couples to get ready pre-ceremony. 

Historic Venue 1902  has quickly become one of the top wedding reception venues and wedding ceremony locations in the Central Florida area.  Winning Orlando Magazine's Best of Wedding Award for Seminole County Venue, Historic Venue and Top award for Best Venue in Orlando. Additional awards for Best Venue in Sanford by Sanford Magazine along with our Best of weddings wins from the Knot and WeddingWire! Our Wedding garden is extremely popular among couples seeking an outdoor ceremony location. With the ability to host weddings up to 175 guests, with an indoor ceremony option and reception space provides a historic yet modern feel that becomes the perfect backdrop for any theme.

Honestly so in love with this Venue. I had my fairy tale wedding here. The staff is so caring and helpful. I even had my fairy Godmother Aleshia, who went above & beyond and even got me my extra Gum. I was so lucky to have found Venue 1902. As soon as I walked in I knew I had to say I Do at Venue 1902
