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.

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!
