In addition to a memorable setting for events and weddings, the personal attention of our staff is unparalleled - assisting with referrals, planning and event day coordination to assure your function is a complete success.

The History Museum, originally a Masonic Temple, was built in 1923. Throughout the building, Egyptian and medieval motifs are found in every room and gallery. The temple's architectural style, Norman Revival, creates the illusion of a mysterious castle. The museum's unique Masonic Temple architecture and historic charm create the perfect backdrop for your important occasion.

Siekman Room has high mullioned leaded windows on three walls, terrazzo floors and an exhibit of historic paintings and stained glass windows. Two sets of French doors open on the large lobby gallery which has tile floors, a beamed ceiling and a six-foot fireplace.
Capacity: 50 people
Approximately 1,900 square feet

Ogilvie Hall is a large hall with heavy beamed ceilings, carpeting, a stage area and antique lighting fixtures. The 1926 Austin pipe organ used by the Masons in their rituals is in working order and available for use with a rental. An 1891 Bechstein grand piano and a public address system is also available in this hall.
Capacity: 165 people
Approximately 3,400 square feet

In addition, the entire museum may be rented so that your guests have the opportunity to explore the exhibits, encouraging conversation and interaction.
