    The setting and the Vendor and staff were absolutely awesome

    This venue provided a perfect setting and did not disappoint as my bride of 55 years and I chose to renew our vows with a significant group of people who gathered to celebrate our many blessings. It was perfect setting [outdoors no less] with the flexibility to move inside if necessary. Our host was ahead of us and ready "behind us" should that have been necessary. She anticipated our every need and addressed details we never tho't of . She and her team were awesome.
    The proof was in the, no not the pudding, but in the response of all our guests, who repeatedly during the event and for days after it, made it clear to us how much they had enjoyed our time together at Story Hill Firehouse!

    Itnfelt like family!

    The Venue is beautiful and would be perfect for a rehearsal dinner or wedding. The large doors make it easy to enjoy the outside but still be in the venue hall.
