About The Lancaster at St. Clair

The Lancaster at St. Clair is a wedding venue in Frankfort, Kentucky, that was originally built in 1849 and is regarded as a historic landmark. With scenic gardens and a tower bell to ring on your way out the door at the end of the evening, The Lancaster is sure to give your wedding a magical feel.

Facilities and Capacity
The Lancaster at St. Clair is an elegant yet classic venue that has two event spaces, each with their own maximum capacity. The Event Hall can accommodate 320 guests in a theatre-style seating (or 200 to 250 guests at round tables).

    Robbie and Elizabeth have been great to work with. Sara, Executive Chef, was so accommodating at our tasting. I would just tell others looking at the venue to feel open to ask for changes and express what they want. Originally, the cost of the rental was too much for us; so, we asked Robbie to work with us for a time which was less expensive. I believe I could have decreased some costs if I had used local caterers, bakery and florists. But, the convenience of having it all coordinated through Elizabeth is well worth the extra expense. I have full faith that Michaelis Events will make everything fabulous.
