Unity Hall - a space as special as your event

There are plenty of places available to rent for receptions, meetings and other events, but very few offer anything approaching the atmosphere of Unity Hall. The fact that Unity Hall is less expensive to rent than many comparably sized, generic alternatives comes as a delightful surprise to many.

Important and wonderful events become even more special in a unique setting. Whether you are planning a wedding reception, holding a meeting, organizing a reunion, staging a play or presenting a concert, Unity Hall will be the ideal location for your event.

Hall Rental Rates

This handsome room has a large gas fireplace. Multiple windows allow natural light to bathe across the hardwood floors. The Parlor comfortably holds 40 guests and can be used as a lounge or meeting room, or for expanded dining. Guests enjoy being seated at the antique tables and chairs, which are as old as the Hall itself.

The first floor also has 2 bathrooms, one of which is handicap accessible.

At the base of the Grand Staircase to the Second Floor is a Ticket Booth and a hall area with coat racks.

Dining Facilities

Unity Hall is as functional as it is beautiful. Its ground floor meeting rooms are spacious and warm, speaking volumes of the years of history contained within its walls. The Dining Room is a bright space, located between the Kitchen and Parlor.

The main dining room includes its original built-in China closets, home to Unity Hall's own China pattern. While this China is no longer used for food service, it is beautifully displayed and provides guests with an intriguing look into the past. The Dining Room seats up to 30 guests, and exits to a small patio in the rear of Unity Hall. From the Dining Room, one enters the Parlor.  

Adjacent to the Main Dining Room is a tidy kitchen. While not large, the kitchen offers adequate space for most functions and contains a double sink and ample work-space. There is a four-burner stove and oven, plus a refrigerator and freezer in the rear. There is private access to the kitchen via the rear door.

The Theatre on the Second Floor is the showpiece of Unity Hall. A guest entering the theater for the first time experiences a sense of awe. Though spacious, this room is warm and inviting with its beautiful hardwood floors, walls and ceilings. The large windows provide much light throughout the day. At night the space can illuminated by the Stately Chandelier alone, or with additional and house lights that ring the room.

The Theatre holds up to 100 people seated in rows for a performance, or approximately 70 guests seated at tables. The charming stage is perfect for small plays, intimate bands, and solo performances, and can be theatrically lit according to the nature of the performance. The stage is also well suited for public affairs such as speeches, lectures, and rallies. The acoustics of the Hall are exemplary. As was the case in years gone by, amplification is not even necessary in most settings. 

A small backstage area contains two modest dressing rooms, and a staircase leading to the Kitchen and rear door.
