History
This venue boasts quite the unique history. Back in 1911, M.M. “Dad” Lee founded his newspaper, The Florida Chief. Even through unforeseen events and natural disasters, this newspaper remained strong. It was in this building that the newspaper was birthed and grew strong in the community. Even though eventually the newspaper was sold and the name was changed, this venue still retains its ties to the past and celebrates the success of Lee’s paper. Today, this venue is pleased to be able to open its doors to couples seeking a unique and history-filled site to exchange their vows.

    Completely Stunning!

    Absolutely beautiful venue! Having the ability to have an indoor or outdoor ceremony in Florida is the key during the year. This industrial chic space can really be used for any type of event. Love Love the getting ready rooms for the bride and groom.

    The prefect Venue

    Everything about this venue is perfect, and the staff is so positive and professional. The flexibility of the venue is one of my favorite aspects, yoy can get married inside or outside and it’s industrial chic so it’s beautiful enough for a glamous bride but manly enough for a groom to enjoy it too!
