The building was originally constructed in 1906 to be used as the City of Winston Post Office. In 1914, the city of Winston and Salem joined together to become Winston-Salem and the building was expanded to become the US Federal Building for the region. It housed the United States Post Office, US Federal Court, US Attorney, FBI, US Marshal, Military enlistment offices, and the IRS. In 1937, it was expanded again to accommodate the growing city. It functioned in this way until 1992 when it was abandoned and all operations moved to the outskirts of Downtown. In 1994, the building was purchased by Gregory Carlyle who has spent over 20 years restoring the building to its original grandeur. The Millennium Ballroom previously served as a sorting room for the Post Office, but now is an elegant space with chandeliers, giant window casements, and maple hardwood floors.

The Millennium Center is a very Special Place!
We traveled form out of town to attend our nephews wedding in Winston Salem. Even though he and his lovely bride were forced to scale things down due to Covid restrictions, I have to say that the staff at the Millennium Center were very professional, they provided more than ample space social distancing, if anyone so chose. The building itself is just lovely, the grand scale of it alone is amazing. It is definitely something you wouldn't imagine down south, Mr. and Mrs. Carlyle have done a fantastic job restoring this beautiful building and giving it life in a new way. We were even lucky enough to receive a personal tour of the entire space, all three levels are just stunning! Between the joy my family shared, the delicious food, and fantastic service we received we will always remember our time in Winston Salem and the Millennium Center.Sent on 12/31/2020

As a wedding planner myself, I knew I needed a venue with fantastic service that would be able to perfect our vision for our wedding day. Greg and his team at The Millennium Center did just that! Greg responded to all of my random ideas and questions with enthusiasm and was a fantastic planning partner. He goes out of his way to make client's dreams a reality. As an added bonus, the menu selections and food offerings at The Millennium Center are expansive and delicious. My husband and I are grateful to Greg and his staff for helping us create our perfect wedding day!Sent on 10/30/2020
