Many soon-to-be brides and grooms from across PA and Maryland choose The Terrapin Station in Red Lion as it's centrally located for many families, centered in a quaint small town with charm and class.
It has been beautifully restored and renovated from its previous life as an old cigar-tobacco drying facility. Red Lion was once America's most famous cigar manufacturing town. The unique aesthetic provided by the building's original purpose has been modernized and preserved by Donna Derrin-Ward.
Local Art and Sculptures hang from the walls and sit as features in the building. Terrapin Station also plans to host corporate retreats and events. Terrapin Station features a fully functional technology suite to make any corporate event a success.
Recently, Lloyd Smucker and Stan Saylor, local politicians, paid a visit to Terrapin Station and a few other businesses after a Ribbon Cutting at Central Pizza. The event was planned by the Red Lion Area Business Association and was attended by many local business owners and members of the local government.
Donn also owns and operates Artemis: The Art of Living, the next-door Arial Yoga Studio and Wellness coaching business. It's accessible through a newly constructed sky bridge over the street below with a view of the soon-to-be outdoor/urban plaza-style venue, but more about that soon.
Artemis also has some extraordinary spaces inside for events. The Arial Yoga Studio features a large solid wood floor, large ceilings on a third floor, Free Mason lodge. There are unique and attractive hardwood chares and a sense of elegance and hominess provided by the classic solid wood construction of the masons of the time.
The now under construction plaza will be a new option in the county for venues and events.
