At The Columbia Station, historic preservation meets modern amenities and elegance to create one of the most spectacular locations to host an event in all of Chester County.
Our newly renovated historic venue is one of the most unique facilities in the Philadelphia area and an ideal spot for weddings, corporate events and social parties! It is far more than a restored train station circa 1858; it is a perfect spot to make memories, no matter what the occasion. Located in downtown Phoenixville, The Columbia Station is an event site with beautiful vintage elements that will impress your guests with its timeless aesthetic.
The Columbia Station was a passenger train station serviced by the Reading Railroad until 1972. In the year 1982, the Station was purchased and renovated into a catering facility. Robert Ryan Catering & Design took possession of The Columbia Station and did a complete interior and exterior renovation in 1998, a complete renovation in 2010, and again another interior renovation in 2013.
Today, it offers beautifully manicured grounds, an outdoor ceremony space, an antique caboose bridal suite, a newly renovated Grand Ballroom boasting two story ceilings, and a large Club Room with a full bar. The Columbia Station gives you everything you want without having to compromise!
