History
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.

Location
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.

    Event: Graduation party on 12.12.14

    I held my upscale, over the top graduation party at OCRHC. When I met with Taylor to discuss my vision for the night, she immediately understood what it was I was going after. Taylor is sweet, prompt, and very professional. Often times I would be able to get emails responded to within a few hours. The space used was the lobby for cocktail hour and the traveling exhibit room for the party. Ashley H. handled the day of logistics for my event.

    I would use OCRHC again for another event in a heartbeat. The staff was so wonderful and they were fully engaged with me regarding making sure the details was just right.

    Excellent and Beautiful Venue!

    The Orange County Regional History Center was the perfect venue for our ceremony and reception! Megan and Taylor helped us with all of the planning details. They were great in recommending vendors for us as well (Plus Catering and Elegant Entertainment were wonderful). Megan was great at meeting with us multiple times to go over table layout, table choices, chair choices, and our monogram. This venue is beautiful and close to many hotels and city activities as well. I wish we could host events here every weekend! We highly recommend The Orange County Regional History Center!

    Perfect Venue at a Reasonable Price

    We absolutely loved having our wedding at the history center. We researched a lot of venues, but for the price, location, and space, this was the best deal by far. My husband and I loved being able to choose all of our own vendors. We especially loved being able to supply the alcohol ourselves. This seriously saved us so much money! Not a lot of venues allow this so this was a big plus.

    Taylor was also seriously wonderful during the entire process. She was quick to respond to calls and emails and made sure our day went off without a hitch.

    Our guests loved the venue and especially loved being able to walk around the exhibits during cocktail hour. It was so conveniently located to hotels, restaurants, and bars too and our guests appreciated that. The courtroom made for some really neat photos too! I would definitely recommend considering getting married at the history center!
