About Keeney Memorial Cultural Center

Keeney Memorial Cultural Center is a historic wedding venue located in Wethersfield, Connecticut. Nestled in the heart of Old Wethersfield, Connecticut’s largest historic district, this venue boasts a rich cultural past and many attractions for out-of-town visitors. The center is also the home of the Wethersfield Museum, operated by the Wethersfield Historical Society, which can provide interesting facts about the town’s past. The building was originally erected in 1893, and served as a public high school for many years. Fully restored in 2008, the property is now a large and airy event center. Just 10 minutes from downtown Hartford and 20 minutes from Middletown, this center is conveniently located while retaining its charming village heritage.

Facilities and Capacity
Couples will immediately note the impressive brick facade of the Keeney Memorial Cultural Center, as well as the fountain that sits among the well-tended garden. A sweeping staircase leads up to the new entrance, which was dedicated in 2000. This is an excellent spot to pose for pictures on the big day, as well as an idyllic space to spend a quiet moment. The building is a lovely and atmospheric location to tie the knot, and provides ample room for events both large and small. Wedding parties between 50 and 200 guests can gather in the spacious 60’ by 30’ ballroom. This hall is furnished with large windows, glittering chandeliers, and its centerpiece, a beautiful Steinway baby grand piano. Small breakout rooms, all outfitted with hardwood floors and vintage touches, can be used for smaller ceremonies or get-ready rooms.

Services Offered
The staff at the Keeney Memorial Event Center will assist with day-of setup and teardown. They can also arrange the tables and chairs in a variety of configurations depending on the desire of the couple. Bose speakers and A/V equipment, screens, and wireless internet make for convenient entertainment services. The facility comes with a fully-equipped prep kitchen where the couple's choice caterer can serve delicious meals. The building is fully air-conditioned, ADA accessible, and comes with parking for 100 cars. This bright and roomy Victorian offers an incredible space in which to wed, all surrounded by the nostalgic beauty of a quaint New England town.

    The historic charm of Wethersfield provided a lovely backdrop for our photos, and the beautiful Keeney ballroom was just the right size for our reception.

    Thanks to the assistance provided by Roberta - all questions were answered quickly and professionally.

    This venue is an excellent value for any memorable Connecticut event.
