About The Nineteenth Century Club

The Nineteenth Century Charitable Association's beautiful Oak Park Landmark building has served the surrounding communities since its construction in 1928. The Classical Revival 2-story building exudes historical charm and inspiring awe for every guest. The Nineteenth Century offers multiple event spaces to fit your needs, with hanging chandeliers, a full stage, original hardwood floors, and a lofty ceiling. The Margaret Houck Ballroom is a beautiful and refined space for your ceremony and reception. Windows line both sides of the ballroom giving you plenty of natural light, casting an iridescent glow over the hardwood floors. From small to medium sized parties, consider the South Dining Room or the North Dining Room. Cozy yet elegant, these two rooms offer the perfect atmosphere.

    We loved the 19th Century Club for our wedding of 160 guests! We had the ceremony and reception in the ballroom, with cocktail hour down on the first floor (while they flipped the ballroom to set up for dinner). We took photos outside the venue as well as across the street at Austin Gardens. Danielle and Ellen were so easy to work with! They were patient and responsive. Danielle was so helpful as my 'day of coordinator.' She did so much for me that day, and completed everything exactly as I wished. I wouldn't have changed a thing. As far as wedding venues go in the Chicago area, the 19th Century Club is a GREAT value! It is significantly less expensive than comparable venues in the city. They have tables, chairs, etc.. that are included in the fee. Many places require you to rent everything. The ballroom was beautiful for our ceremony as well as our reception. I can't say enough positive things about this venue. If you are looking for your venue...look no further!

    We just had our wedding here after booking it the January prior. All in all it was an excellent venue to work with since from the get-go they let us adjust the schedule to fit our needs, recommended an excellent caterer, and the on hand staff was nothing but helpful. The interior decoration is lovely and the building itself is quite gorgeous with a wonderful park across the street for taking photo's in. What is even better is that they use this space for rentals so frequently that they have this process down pat with everything going like clockwork. Best of all it's very affordable running from $1300-$2000 depending on what part of the building you use. If you're looking for a space in the area at least drop by for a visit.
