Why We Like This Place

  • You’ll definitely get an ‘A’ for doing your wedding “old school”. Ladies Home Journal raved about the innovative architecture of this schoolhouse when it was built in 1911, and today your guests will love that they can stay overnight in classrooms turned guest rooms.
  • Who knew school was this cool? Unique spaces abound here, from the two-story, steampunk Boiler Room—complete with exposed brick walls, antique chandeliers, ornate iron railings and massive wooden bar—to the Movie Theater’s hip new take on your grandparents’ auditorium.
  • A wedding here blows even the best prom out of the water, starting with a courtyard ceremony and ending with dinner and dancing in the fabulous gymnasium. Plus, the hardwood dance floor, soaring ceiling, rows of skylights, multipaned windows and original vintage flourishes make history fun.
