Welcome to A Unique Event and Party Venue on Maryland's Eastern Shore

Just over the Bay Bridge, conveniently located in historic Stevensville, 1631 is less than a 30 minute drive from Annapolis, Grasonville, Centreville and Easton.

Located in the heart of historic Stevensville, 1631 offers a unique venue for celebrations, parties, workshops, product launches, meetings and more. The name was inspired by the year Kent Island was founded and the logo includes vegetation native to the Chesapeake Bay. We believe the Eastern Shore community would benefit from creating a mixed use venue, that could accommodate up to 70 guests for various celebrations and events. We priced 1631 in a way that small businesses, families, solopreneurs and local groups could enjoy and afford the venue. View our venue rental rates here.
