Gallery 1874, a venue located in Arvada, Colorado, has seamlessly melded historic touches with modern twists. Situated in Olde Town Arvada, this historic venue was originally built back in 1874. Carmen and Mark Sample, the owners of this quaint venue, have fully restored this building and brightened it up with vibrant colors and art-lined walls. After its restoration, it now provides a timeless setting for couples to exchange their vows right in the downtown city area.

"The communication was always clear and concise. I feel if we had a problem or a question it was replied to with very little delay. A few items we were able to negotiate for the best interest of both parties and in every situation we felt as if we were part of the process and our wants and needs were recognized and important."Sent on 05/28/2019

Wonderful space for our anniversary party! 90 friends sat and enjoyed and mingled. David was great to work with and helped me with his knowledge of how to best use the space. I recommend considering this venue for your event. Many of our friends commented on what a lovely space it was and how it just fit us.Sent on 10/08/2019
