Congratulations, you are getting married!
Our goal at The Legacy Building is to provide you with a space and experience like no other! Nestled in the heart of central Illinois lies an Opera House from the 1800's, restored, preserved, and awaiting your dream wedding. This is the luxurious, intimate venue that you've been looking for. Treat yourself and your guests to a memorable experience in this historic brick masterpiece.
The Opera House
4,000 sq. ft. of majestic wood floors, exposed brick walls, antique chandeliers, and 17 ft. high rounded ceilings.
Adjoining the great room is a 4 ft. high stage with elegant wood casing, brick backing, and mini side rooms. The acoustics here are unbeatable.
To the southeast we have the Green Room- a multipurpose space suitable for extra seating, caterers use, or the groom's lounge. In the southwest region, you will find the kitchen and lavatories.
Designed for caterers in mind, this room is bijou but highly efficient for meal execution, and is itself, delightful to behold.
Delicately preserved, the stage bears tribute to the original fly loft, brick walls, trap door, and performers' signatures from the late 1800's.
This space is itself large enough for a private dinner party, or the band of your choice. It features an antique french door that opens to the exterior spiral staircase, leading down into the enchanting Legacy Courtyard.
The Green Room
You and your photographers dreams will come true in this captivating space, where the natural lighting and crumbling plaster accentuate the beauty in every person and object they shoot.
This room is available to rent independent of the entire Opera House at $100 per hour.
