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.

All inclusive site for wedding
Beautiful, historic venue with gracious, helpful owners. Wonderful bridal room with lots of mirrors and 3 salon chairs for the whole crew to get ready. The venue provides catering that is second to none. Our guests raved about the food and bar service. Venue provided us with a preferred DJ who played appropriate, and varied music during cocktail hour and dinner, yet, kept the party pumping when it was time to dance. The wife of the owner stepped in and helped fix the flowers that arrived from another florist. She had extra flowers she used from her own stock to rearrange the delivered flowers. They ended up being beautiful. This venue is focused on customer service. I would recommend to anyone for any festive occasion.Sent on 11/16/2019

The best wedding experience
We were married (both service and reception) this past fall at the Millennium Center and I cannot say enough positive things about the overall experience! Being incredibly busy finishing the last year of my masters I had little time for wedding planning and staying on top of details with vendors and such. Greg and his team were able to provide almost everything I needed in terms of decorations and overall flow of the wedding. We also used his catering company for food and it was the most delicious wedding food we have ever had! The day of he handled everything with the caterer, DJ, cake, and guests. We just showed up, got ready and had the most relaxing and beautiful day and night!Sent on 03/30/2019
