History
This recently restored building was originally built in the late 1930s during President Roosevelt’s Works Progress Administration in an effort to employ people in the midst of the Great Depression. The building was used to train firefighters with state-of-the-art facilities. Many firefighters aided in the construction of the building by hauling materials to the location. Over the years, the building morphed into a place for social gatherings, dances, and barbecues. Now the building has been restored to its full potential and was added to the National Historical Registry.

    The Palmer Building is a Beautiful Venue

    This venue is Beautiful and the staff is professional and extremely helpful. Anji, Ali, and Amber were a joy to work with. We used several of their suggested vendors and it worked out great. When you rent this venue, you have tables and chairs and many decorations available to you. It was a huge plus to be able to get into the venue early to set up and decorate and then have until midnight the day of the wedding to get everything packed up. I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone.

    The Palmer Building made planning our wedding so incredibly easy. The staff are extremely accommodating and so incredibly nice. Planning the decorations for this venue was a breeze, as they have so many decorations on hand already. The Palmer Building rents out the venue for the entire day, which was so nice when you needed to tell other vendors to arrive, at a decent price as well. We had the perfect day, and this venue was the perfect place to have our wedding. I would 100% recommend this venue to anyone who is considering it!
