The ballroom was built in 1924 by Bill and Lenora Golden and was operated by their son and daughter-in-law as a restaurant. In 1929, they built a second structure that was used as a roller skating rink and dance hall. For years it was the most popular destination for dances and live entertainment. Eventually they sold the Glow in 1962 and it was renovated in the 1990s. It then became a popular wedding facility. After the historic building was burned down by an electrical fire in 2009, it was rebuilt and is the building standing today.

Words can not express how much we loved having or wedding at Golden Glow! They are all simply amazing!! From paying attention to every detail to making sure everyone was taken care of. From the first time we meet everyone there we knew we just had to have our wedding there and fell in love with the venue and everyone who worked there. Seriously can not thank you enough for all that you did to make sure our day was simply amazing. You not only took care of the bride and groom but also every guest that was there and everyone can not stop raving about you all. You will be my first venue I recommend to everyone!! Thank you again

Elegant and Full-Service Ballroom
The Golden Glow and their entire staff made my night perfect. All of my guests were wonderfully fed, the bar service was quick, and the decor was on point! They have many different tiers of food and beverage packages to choose from, so they are literally the venue for any budget! The vendors they work with give you SO many options for linens and decor. The baker and chef, Mia, is so skilled! Our multiple cakes were amazing, both visually and taste-wise! All of the food she prepared was amazing, my husband even asked if we could have Golden Glow remake the food for our first anniversary next year! This venue will be as involved as you want them. If you want them to plan your day, they are knowledgeable enough to do it and do it perfectly. They are also capable of taking your vision and making every little detail come to life! I am so happy this venue also offers itself for every other party you ever want to host in the future!
