Community Room Rental

Host an Event at The Boone History Center

The Boone History Center is a unique, affordable, and comfortable venue for special events. From important meetings, to bridal showers and anniversaries, our facility is the perfect place to create lasting memories. Housed in a former masonic temple that was built in 1907, our basement community room (on the left below) can accommodate up to 130 people, has a fully-functioning kitchen, and is handicapped-accessible.  During the Covid-19 pandemic, the maximum occupancy is 75-80 people.  Hopefully that will change soon.

Our first floor exhibition space (on the right below) creates a unique atmosphere for small meetings and events that do not plan to serve food. This space is only available by special arrangement.
