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.

Choosing to have our wedding reception at the Millennium Center was the best choice we made about our wedding. The building itself is stunning, but the staff really made the wedding of our dreams a reality! Kaitlyn, Greg, and the entire staff blew us away with their professionalism, their creativity, and their flexibility. They were amazing to work with- they thought of everything and really have weddings down to a science, we never doubted we were in great hands! Kaitlyn kept me updated about everything - even sent me preview pictures while setting up the ballroom and lobby, which was so thoughtful. One of the great things about the Millennium Center is all of the extras they provide. When booking with them you not only get a venue, but a caterer, an event coordinator, serving staff, and new friends! The food was delicious, and we heard nothing but great things from our guests. The morning of our wedding, our entire bridal party was able to get ready either in the bridal salon or in a special area downstairs that Greg set up for the guys. This was so special to us, and saved us from having one more thing to coordinate! Our guests kept raving about our reception and I know we all have the best memories of our special day thanks to the Millennium Center staff! If you book with them- you won't regret it!

We used the Millennium Center only for our reception location and I'm so glad we did! Greg and his wonderful staff were great to work with! Planning a wedding from across the country is never easy but Greg went above and beyond to accommodate any special requests and customized the space to make it uniquely ours. Millennium Center has so much character and really embodies the rich history of Winston-Salem. Greg and his staff worked really well with our florist, photographer, and cake bakery- everything went so smoothly on the wedding day! Greg went the extra mile to ensure everything was perfect for the big day, he even worked around our schedules to set up a menu & wine tasting for us when we came into town one weekend. His staff was very friendly and welcoming- Kaitlyn set up a romantic candlelit dinner for my husband and I before being introduced at the reception, it was such a wonderful moment to have! My experience with the Millennium Center was nothing but positive!
