Facilities and Capacity
The Palmer Building dates back to the late 1930s during President Roosevelt’s Works Progress Administration. It was originally used to train firefighters, and many firefighters aided in the construction. The building was lovingly restored in recent years, placing it on the National Historic Registry. It retains many original features, including its stunning stone walls, cozy fireplaces, and wooden floors. Ceremonies are hosted outdoors on their beautiful stone steps before a grand open fireplace. After you exchange vows, you might slip away for your portrait session while your guests mingle over cocktails on the lush green lawn. After that, you can have a reception with up to 200 seated guests and 250 standing in the 3,800-square-foot Fireman’s Hall. Elegant white drapes and neutral interiors make this space a perfect blank canvas for personalized festivities. With ample room for dancing and your evening entertainment, it is the perfect location for an unforgettable wedding celebration.
The Palmer Building offers a wide range of wedding packages tailored to your needs, tastes, and budget. Their in-house planning team can assist with everything from choreographing your schedule of events to recommending vendors and communicating with them on your behalf.

Set up, clean-up, parking, and use of chairs, tables, and linens are included in the reception fee.
