The staff is wonderful especially Debbie in the office. The location and history of the building are fantastic. They always have their ears open to your questions and Debbie can recommend vendors in the area if you are still searching for any.Sent on 12/19/2014

An awesome, classic venue with so much to offer. Very large reception area, an actual church inside, the library is great for cocktail hour and numerous rooms for private wedding party storage or even to have separate rooms for kids entertainment, make this a perfect place to have everything in one place. Staff is outstanding as well.
I am DJ and have done several events at the Masonic Center. The staff here has always been pleasant and easy to work with! They will work with you to be sure your event day will be flawless! I highly recommend this venue, you won't be disappointed!
Beautiful, historic, and interesting. The staff is excellent and ready to help. There is a reason the Masonic Center is one of the most popular places in town.
