GEORGE BAER CHAPEL
Introducing the newest (and also one of the oldest) wedding venues in Berks County; George Baer Chapel – an Abraham Lincoln Events venue.
Originally built in 1855 with a massive, no-expense-spared renovation in 1892 paid for by Reading Railroad president George Baer, George Baer Chapel features stunning stained glass windows from Bavaria and the finest craftsmanship from Europe and North America throughout the rest of the structure. Approximately $10,000 was collected for the windows alone, about $8,000,000 in today’s dollars. The current church owners have partnered with the Abraham Lincoln Events staff to help restore this great location and make it available for events and special occasions.
