History

Originally designed by D.B. Woodruff, The Library Ballroom was built in 1889 by the Macon Public Library and Historical Society to house the city’s first public library, and remained there until the 1920s. Known as the College Discotheque in the 1960s and 1970s, it housed The Allman Brothers first paid gig. After decades of inactivity, The Library Ballroom faced demolition in the 1990s, but major renovations restored it to its prime splendor. In 2007, The Library Ballroom was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

    Great Venue and People

    I have not even had my wedding and The Library Ballroom has exceeded my expectations. Once I decided to go with them I felt so much better about planning my wedding. Kaylee has given great recommendations on all type of vendors, and is always available to answer questions. She has put my mind at ease and I cannot wait to see how it turns out on the big day.

    The Library Ballroom's reply:

    Aww, thanks Dallas Ray! We're super excited about your big day!! Cannot wait to help you celebrate!

    Initial viewing

    Wedding in Oct. 2020. The Library ballroom is beautiful. Kaylee the manager has been so helpful & accommodating. She gave us a folder with so much info on planning a wedding from catering, to photographers, to musicians. Would highly recommend taking a look at this elegant venue. We said yes to the venue & can not wait.
