The Century was built in 1912 as a theater by William R. Mensinger. It was dedicated in 1913 by Gilbert & Sullivan’s “Pirates of Penzance.” Unfortunately, a fire ruined it later that year, but it was rebuilt and rededicated in 1914. It lasted until 1934 when it was eventually turned into retail shops. It’s been the magnificent wedding venue it is today since 2014.
