The Heritage Museum is a beautiful and popular venue that can seat up to 200 people. Our room rental for a summer 2017 reception is $1400 plus an additional $10 per person based on your final count. Pricing includes room rental, tables, chairs, place settings, all table linens and set up of these items.

If you are looking for a ceremony site, we also offer the option of having your ceremony in the same space. Shepard Hall is set theater style and after the ceremony, your guests would move to our Upper Exhibit Gallery for a cocktail hour while the Museum staff resets Shepard Hall for your reception.

Laura was fabulous! Highly recommend here!

We cannot speak more highly of Laura, who is the new event director!! She was a dream to work with for our Jan. 2023 wedding, with both the ceremony and reception at the Heritage Museum! She was very knowledgeable and helped us with every detail we needed. She made sure every box was checked and every i dotted with the details. Laura was amazing to communicate with and made sure to respond within a timely fashion, sometimes even on her day off! She helped give her input on what might work best for the space, which was super helpful! Laura went above and beyond to see if we were able to accommodate our dogs within our ceremony, which they were!! We cannot highly recommend working with Laura enough! 10 stars!! She was wonderful and would love to work with her again for any of our events in the future!

Beautiful, classic venue allowing for upscale reception, needing little to no additional decorations. A year later, family and friends are still talking about the character of the venue. It is reasonably prices, and letting us select our own caterer and provide our own alcohol, was very cost effective. Highly recommend this venue to any and all friends getting married.

Amy and her event staff were amazing to work with. She did absolutely everything she could to ensure that our day went smoothe and as stress free as possible. We didn't have our ceremony there, but since it was set for outdoors, the Heritage Center was prepared to be a back up option should the weather not cooperate. The recreation hall is a beautiful canvas to create your vision. I couldn't be more happy!
