Boswell Hall is a versatile space near the intersection of Route 50 and Route 301 in Bowie, Maryland. With two rooms available for large or small events, Boswell Hall prides itself on its ability to work with any vendors.

Two Rooms for Events

Cardinal Room

From its initial roots as a Knights of Columbus ballroom, Cardinal Room has been transformed into a unique space featuring neutral colors, soaring ceilings with partially exposed beams, brass chandeliers, a 1,400 square foot dance floor, and food-staging facilities. The large, open 6,400 square foot floor plan allows you ultimate creativity and flexibility to stick with its minimalist beauty or create an opulent atmosphere – it is only limited by your vision.

Columbian Room

Columbian Room provides an intimate setting that is perfect for your small wedding reception, cocktail hour, or VIP suite. The space may be rented on its own or may be added to your Cardinal Room rental for a flat fee.

Your Event

Whether you are planning a wedding, board meeting, sales launch, a fundraiser or a holiday gathering, Boswell Hall will execute your event with excellent customer service, delicious food, professionalism, and hospitality.

Weddings & Rehearsal Dinners

Selecting Cardinal Room for your wedding reception, rehearsal dinner, or bridal shower will offer your guests a unique venue and private dining experience. Additionally, you will have a stress-free and enjoyable planning process. Our staff can assist you in planning this joyous occasion down to the smallest details. If you’ve chosen to partner with a wedding coordinator, we’re happy to work with them directly. At Cardinal Room our sales professionals can design a seamless event filled with memories that you’ll treasure for a lifetime.

Social Events & Parties

Selecting either the Cardinal or Columbian Room for your social event takes the stress out of the planning. Our event professionals will help you coordinate all of your party needs. We have a list of preferred vendors who can execute your design with lighting, draping, or Chiavari chairs. Otherwise, we can simply provide you with an excellent blank canvas in either room on which to overlay your own vision. You can bring in your own vendors to build your own event from the bottom up!


We have the right-sized venue for your meeting! Whether you need the spacious Cardinal Room or the smaller Columbian Room, either space could be the perfect place for your group. Our event professionals will put their experience and efficiency to work for you when planning the space so that you can focus on running your meeting.
