Altgeld Auditorium


Altgeld Auditorium is the showpiece of this 1899 building. Restored to its original grandeur in 2004, it features faux marble columns, Victorian friezes, and a 40’ arched ceiling. Perfect for weddings and banquets, the auditorium can seat up to 240 guests for formal dining. A large stage with theatrical curtains and a balcony overlooking the main floor also make this an ideal setting for lectures and presentations.
