Facility Rentals

Each venue is available to rent for weddings, rehearsal dinners, reunions, performances, parties, business functions, and other gatherings. Each space is unique in feel. You'll find art galleries, the marble lobby of the 1931 post office, and a courtroom restored to its original grandeur - complete with the judge's bench, dark woodwork and tin ceiling. One of our facilities is sure to fit your needs perfectly.
