Mt. Pleasant Church

Shelters must be reserved at least 2 weeks in advance. Due to necessary preparation, we cannot accommodate requests for reservations less than 2 weeks prior to an event.

Atop the highest hill for miles is the historic Mount Pleasant Church where weddings and services have been conducted since 1809. The "little church on the hill" is a classic part of Tanglewood. For many couples, this beautiful countryside location is the only place for their storybook wedding.
