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.
