History

This venue was constructed before the end of the 19th century, serving as a mercantile (a retailer), a department store, and a furniture store. A huge fire swept through the building in 2014, but there was an incredible discovery made in the cleanup. The original hardwood floors had survived, protected beneath a fireproof polyester covering. This and the brick walls inspired a new chapter in the story of this building, turning it into an authentically unique setting for special events.

    Amazing place

    The venue was spectacular, from the exposed brick to the exposed ceiling. It was everything you could have asked for and more to make the perfect day.

    Cannot say enough great things!!

    We had the most amazing experience with Mercantile Hall from start to finish, even through the pandemic. I do not have enough good things to say about Meghan, our coordinator from Merc. She was so quick to respond to our many, many questions, handled all of our details and requests with ease, and went above and beyond our expectations on the wedding day. If anyone is looking for a venue that has it all, Mercantile Hall is the hidden gem you are searching for!
