Event Hall

Unique Mid-century modern facility

This is a mid-century modern building designed by University of Michigan architect George B. Brigham and was built in 1956 for the Unitarian Church. The hall is available for weddings, dinners, parties, movies, music, performances and meetings.

One hundred people can stand and mingle or be seated theater style in chairs. We've had a successful dinner party with dancing for 82 people. You may be able to add a few more with stage seating.

mid-century modern event hall

The main floor area is 1,209 square feet (39' long x 31' wide).  The raised stage with the curved front stairs and curved back wall is 216 square feet (12' x 18'). The total is 1425 square feet.

On the Berkshire side are six large glass windows that lets in lots of light. Screened window shades may be lowered or raised. The ceiling is sixteen feet high with exposed beams.

This room is air-conditioned in the summer, heated in winter and there is a large ceiling fan to circulate air.

Special arrangements can be made to use the Choir Balcony for photography, lighting, music etc. but it is not open for general use.

Restroom facilities (men’s and women’s) are just outside the space and available.

Parking is on street. Arrangements can be made for valet service.

Carriage House, Gazebo and Gardens

Carriage House

The first floor of the Carriage House is open and configurable for your needs. It is large enough to set up three dining or conference tables and would be nice for a baby shower, brunch, or tea service. You can rent the facility for a small corporate retreat meeting area.

Just outside is the open air gazebo and back garden which can be incorporated into your event. You can host a lovely afternoon party in the gardens and gazebo.

There is a small utility kitchen area on the first floor including two dishwashers, a sink, storage and prep space and a microwave to use for your party.  A private bathroom is on the second floor. 

Gazebo
