Amazing venue! Amazing staff!
We chose the HPO based on proximity to our church and it was one of the best decisions we could have made. The space is gorgeous and we received so many compliments on the layout of the tables and dance floor. We also made the decision early on the add on the coordination services they offer and were so lucky to work with Madeline. Madeline made our entire vision come to life and the reception was exactly how we pictured it. She communicated with vendors, coordinated the set up, and even broke down the event at the end of the night. She was so responsive to my emails and always provided valuable insight when I was making decisions. She is so knowledgeable! We had the absolute best experience with the post office and can't stop recommending them to our friends and family.Sent on 10/09/2019

Amazing day at the HPO
The Historic Post Office was the most wonderful venue for our July wedding. The upstairs suites were so comfortable and made getting ready so easy. My bridal party had beautiful light for makeup and hair. While my groom and his groomsmen had a blast playing pool. Madeline was our day of coordinator and she was amazingly organized, punctual, and made sure our day went exactly as planned. Many guests reach out to us after our wedding exclaiming about beauty of the HPO. We are beyond happy with the HPO and with Madeline!Sent on 07/31/2019

Beautiful location with plenty of event potential. Great for weddings, parties, or conferences. Great staff! Highly recommend!
We love working @ The Historic Post Office! There are so many possibilities within the space and the area nearby is great for photos. The time and attention to detail that went into the renovations is just amazing - you won't be disappointed!
The Historic Post Office is the perfect venue for large or small weddings (or any event, really!). The building is unique because it's historic and has a ton of character and charm, yet is also a blank canvas so it can host many different styles. It is hard to find a really beautiful, flexible indoor space for a large wedding, but this place is perfect! The upstairs and downstairs is a really neat aspect as well that you can't find anywhere else. Kelsey and her team are really dedicated to making sure everything is perfect for their events, and they are also willing to go outside of the box with new ideas. We highly recommend The Historic Post Office to brides, businesses, or anyone looking to host in a neat location with a wonderful support staff.
