Constructed in 1908 as the first addition to the primary footprint of the building, the auditorium is a showpiece of the craftsmanship of the day. The seating is arranged in a traditional two level design. The main floor offers a flexible seating option while the balcony provides additional seating for a total accommodation of up to 1,000. The stained glass work is unparalleled, with the fifteen foot diameter domed “sunlight” showcasing the blending of style and elegance.
The stage contains a total of 102 scene “flats” that were hand painted in the early 1900s and shipped by railcar to the facility and installed…and are still all in working order. They provide a variety of backgrounds that prove to provide a custom feel to any performance or presentation. There is also a fully operational pipe organ, sound system and stage lighting.
The Dining Hall is highly adaptable to a variety of seating layouts. For a dining layout, it can accompany 450 people comfortably. It can also be configured to have row seating in chairs and dining tables at the same time to accommodate two types of scenarios during the same gathering.
If it is a wedding you are planning, the Grand Staircase in the East of the Grand Dining Hall offers a beautiful focus for your entrance and on which you may exchange your vows.
The Egyptian Room is suitable for intimate weddings or meetings. It also has a unique display of 100 year old stained glass windows, which are the third level windows of the “turret.”
In the Crystal Room, sunlight comes through the East windows and shines through a wall of crystal windows, casting a beautiful light into the space. It is suitable for smaller, more subdued gatherings and can accommodate 40 – 50 guests.
