Kind Words

“We stumbled on The Historic when my daughter was looking for a wedding venue. She fell in love with the castle-like exterior and the brick interior. It was the perfect canvas for the speak-easy vibe she was wanting to create. We signed on and they were easy to work with. Brenna especially was incredible to work with! It means a lot when your vendors walk the walk with you and do their best to help you create the perfect wedding day! This is exactly what Brenna did for us!  I can’t say enough good things about Brenna and The Historic! They helped to make my daughter’s wedding an unforgettable day! “

“My husband and I were married at the Historic on September 23, 2021. We are truly happy with our overall experience of choosing this venue to help bring our dream wedding to life. From the time we began planning and organizing our wedding details, up until our big day, The staff was very attentive and supportive in giving suggestions and providing us with all the resources that we needed to help make our planning an easy and enjoyable process. For any newly engaged couple, I would highly recommend choosing to capture the special moment of your very own wedding day at the Historic. “
