In 1927, a neoclassical revival building—now the History Center’s home—was built and became Orlando’s main courthouse. By 1942, the community sought to remember a century of history through a pioneer-times display in the old brownstone courthouse next door. This popular exhibit grew, and a historical museum was opened in Loch Haven Park after the brownstone courthouse was demolished in 1957. When the newest high-rise Orlando courthouse debuted in 1995, the 1927 courthouse became a regional history museum.
The Orange County Regional History Center is located at Magnolia Avenue and Central Boulevard in the heart of downtown Orlando. Parking is available in the Library Parking Garage across from the Orlando Public Library. This venue is located minutes away from popular Orlando area theme parks and attractions.

It has its own special charm, and makes for a lovely wedding venue! Definitely check it out!
We love the Orange County Regional History Center for it's historical building features and classic ambiance. It's great for photos indoors and outdoors. A cool thing about this place is their old court room that Ted Bundy sat at!
This venue is definitely one of Central Florida's most unique locations for your event! The courtroom is a wonderful ceremony location (not to mention the wonderful acoustics!), and the ballroom is large, and beautifully lit. Nothing "standard" or "routine" about this place!
