OUR STORY

This historic building, dubbed the "Big Brick Block Hall" opened to the public with a dance and music in October 1905. Throughout the following century, several businesses occupied the space before being purchased by Dale and Lynn Graunke. As a general contractor, Dale led the renovation project, with Lynn and a handful of trusted craftsmen working alongside him for seven years to carefully and thoughtfully restore the historic building. As they uncovered the building’s layers, several surprises were discovered, including original elements that could be reused after meticulous care and cleaning. Much like the original visionaries, Dale and Lynn’s passion for serving the community and bringing people together to enjoy a good time became reality when The Jerome opened its doors in September 2019.

    The Jerome Review

    My wife and I recently got married and had our reception at the Jerome Center, it was such an incredible experience. The Jerome is a beautiful venue, and the restored building with modern touches made it astonishing. Every guest was amazed with the venue and all the decorations supplied by the Jerome, family members, and other vendors such as Phos Lighting. My wife and I only heard positive comments from guests!

    It was a pleasure to work with Lynn and Dale! They were very accommodating to my wife and I’s wishes. They made sure that everything would go as planned, whether that meant stopping into the venue or talking over the phone, they were there willing to help! If an issue arose on the day of the wedding, Lynn was always there to assist.

    My wife and I were extremely pleased with the venue and we would definitely recommend it to anyone in the area!

    Gorgeous Venue, Phenomenal Service!

    My husband and I got married at The Jerome on August, 29th 2020.

    When we started the venue search a year prior, we were having trouble finding exactly what we wanted in the Minneapolis area. The moment I walked in to The Jerome, I knew it was something incredibly special. The rich history, unique original details and the modernized touches create the perfect balance for a beautiful wedding space. It is warm, inviting, spacious and breathtaking! There was no question The Jerome was the spot for us.

    The owners, Lynn and Dale are the kindest and the most hard-working people you will ever meet. Planning a wedding from out-of-state could have been very challenging, but they made the entire process a breeze! They showed professionalism, kindness, thoughtfulness, and phenomenal assistance. Our original wedding date was May 23rd, but we ended up postponing due to COVID. They were extremely flexible, helpful and accommodating during and after choosing our new date.

    Our wedding day was beautiful! I am still hearing from our guests how impressed they were with The Jerome. My husband and I still can’t get over how truly perfect it was for us. Thank you, Lynn and Dale, from the bottom of our hearts! You made our dreams a true reality and we will forever be grateful.

Thank you so much for hanging in there and setting a new date in 2020. As we said, the most important thing was to see you two married. Thank you for letting us be a part of this magical day. Wishing you endless love and happiness!
