Newly acquired and renovated, the George Baer Chapel may be a new venue to Abraham Lincoln Events but it is one of the oldest wedding venues in Berks County. Originally built in 1855 with a massive, no-expense-spared renovation in 1892 paid for by Reading Railroad president, its namesake; George Baer.


The Chapel features stunning stained glass windows from Bavaria and the finest craftsmanship from Europe and North America throughout the structure. The current church owners have partnered with the Abraham Lincoln Events staff to help restore this great space and make it available for events and special occasions of any type.
