About

Up to 250 guests

We are an elegant reception hall, located in the heart of Shawnee, Kansas. We sit on the grounds of Shawnee Town 1929, a living history museum, with 28 historic structures on site. These buildings make excellent backdrop for wedding photos. The Museum also hosts a small gazebo, which is perfect for outdoor wedding ceremonies, vow renewals and more!

The Town Hall boasts hardwood floors, Victorian wall paper, chandeliers and a large antique bar to serve from. Our Hall comes fully equipped with tables and chairs, a full kitchen, audio visual equipment and a facility attendant, who will be present for the duration of your event, should you need anything from the facility itself. The kitchen is a caterers dream! It offers commercial refrigerators, an automatic ice machine, stove tops, ovens, two sinks, a coffee pot and a microwave. There is also a back entrance straight into the kitchen from the parking lot, for ease of loading and unloading on your big day! Speaking of load in, we do not restrict who you use for vendors. Bring your vendors and your ideas, and let us help you make your dream wedding come true! We are owned and operated by the City of Shawnee, so Shawnee residents get a discounted rental rate!

Let's not forget parking, the parking lot is large, well lit and free! We are easily accessible, located on Johnson Drive, between I-35 and I-435. Please reach out to check availability, or to schedule a time to come and view our Town Hall, and the Museum grounds. We rent eighteen months out, so we're already booking into 2022.

    My wedding ceremony was held outdoors in the gazebo at Old Shawnee Town, and my reception was inside the Town Hall. The cost to rent both was extremely reasonable compared to other venues, and was just as beautiful. The Town Hall is very elegant inside, with wooden floors and white crown molding outlining burgandy walls, and a beautiful oak bar. If you're looking for a low cost venue without having to sacrifice decor, then Shawnee Town is a great option!

    Classy and Reasonable

    This location offers excellent options. There is an outdoor gazebo under the trees and a lovely large building with an elegant large antique bar. The people are wonderful to work with, and the cost of this venue is more affordable than several we looked at. We reserved the area for 11 hours total. Would recommend Shawnee Town in a minute!

    This was the only place we found that was reasonably affordable and would also allow you to bring in your own alcohol and catering. The place is beautiful and we filled the place up with about 210 people, anymore and it would have felt crowded. (We only used this place for our reception.) The staff was very helpful and super easy to work with. They did require a off duty office be hired, which is completely understandable, he was a pretty chill and cool guy anyways. I highly recommend this place! Our theme was 1920's and the venue matched perfectly.
