"The History Center is full of character, sophistication, and surprise. It is the ideal venue for a couple who wants to have a truly memorable and historic wedding. Your guests will love it, and you will too.”

"Brittany was always prompt in responding to my calls and emails, went above and beyond what I expected, and was willing to put together all of the “extra” DIY projects for the wedding that I made. I literally handed off an SUV truck full of items that had to be arranged, placed, and assembled at the reception venue and it was put together by Brittany and her team exactly as I wanted.”

"Absolutely beautiful if you don’t want to get married in a church or hotel. It’s really something different and unique. People are still talking about our wedding!”

"Everything was absolutely wonderful. Georgianna Jackson went above and beyond and was my life saver! Throughout the entire planning process, she was so patient and informative. Georgianna is truly great at her job. I enjoyed working with her so much and she eased my mind as our date approached. Our day would not have been half of what it was without such a dedicated staff.”

""The History Center was the most perfect venue for our wedding. I cannot express how much we enjoyed the venue as well as the staff…we have some of the most interesting and unique wedding photos I have ever seen. It is unbelievable how much BANG comes with the History Center.”
