630 Main was originally built in the 1880’s. It has been restored as a private event and meeting space. Making this an ideal venue for wedding events, birthday parties, family gatherings, graduation parties, corporate events and more.

The Basics

When planning, get the basics down first:

  • Who or what is it for? (business, family, friends)
  • What's the reason for the event or meeting? (theme, birthday, special occasion)
  • When is it?
  • How many people will be attending?
  • What type of event is it? (meeting, brunch, lunch, dinner, hors d'oeuvres, dessert, buffet, sit-down meal)

After any event, it's a good idea to record in a journal how much was left over and what people liked and didn't like. This information will be a big help when you plan your next gathering. Think of your party journal as a reference to look back on when you are trying to remember your boss's favorite drink. That way you can have it at the next event.
