The historic home of Carl House was built in 1903 but was newly renovated in 2003 to become an event venue space of dreams. With this new renovation came the addition of gorgeous landscaping that is perfect for an outdoor ceremony space! The large brick backdrop, along with the brick platform, is the perfect place to say “I do.” The additional elevation that comes with this ceremony space also allows all of your guests to easily see your special moment!

Inside Carl House

Inside the grand Carl House is the amazing, renovated ballroom. The tall ceilings and double winding staircases of the ballroom is an elegant space that is the perfect reception location! Carl House has its very own restaurant grade kitchen and culinary team that will aid you in creating the menu of your dreams. The ballroom can seat 280 guests for a buffet style dinner, or 135 guests for a plated meal, so there is plenty of space for eating, as well as a dance floor!

If you are looking to have an indoor ceremony, the ballroom can be used for that as well! Inside the ballroom is a large, brick fireplace with a wide, wooden mantle. This area can be decorated to be the perfect ceremony backdrop! After the ceremony, this space can then be used for the reception, which is an easy transition that the Carl House staff has mastered.
