Overview

The Freight Shed is located at Riverwalk Landing in Historic Yorktown, nestled amongst the banks of the York River. This charming and quaint facility is available to rent for receptions, banquets, reunions, corporate retreats, and other special events. Featuring picturesque scenery and stunning waterfront views, the Freight Shed provides a breathtaking, panoramic backdrop unlike any other facility of its kind.    

Built in 1935 by the National Park Service after a tropical storm destroyed much of the waterfront, the building was used as a terminal for Baltimore steamships until 1952, when it was remodeled and served as a post office.

The current facility, extensively renovated in 2005 in conjunction with the opening of Riverwalk Landing, is a highly sought after wedding venue in Hampton Roads. The unique space can be customized for each couple, and can accommodate seated ceremonies and receptions of up to 130 people. Beautiful glass, arched doors open up to the Riverwalk Plaza, which offers an additional tented area that can be used for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and dancing. The tent is included in the venue fee April - October.
