About The Historic Venue 1902

4421 Edgewater Dr, Orlando, FL 32804

The Historic Venue 1902 is aptly named. The building was originally built as a schoolhouse in Sanford, Florida, known as the Sanford Grammar School. In 2017, it was established as a premier wedding venue. Restored with lavish, beautiful events in mind, today it boasts the perfect balance of vintage character and modern amenities. You’ll find original architectural details like hardwood floors and the signature brick exterior paired with contemporary white walls and updated decor that is both timeless and trendy. They’ve thought of everything you need when it comes to throwing an incredible wedding!
