1845 Courthouse***

The room is an open floor plan and includes 65 chairs and 2 tables.  The grounds also serve as a lovely area if you are looking to host your reception under the stars.  ***Unfortunately, due to the lack of heat, the 1845 Courthouse cannot be rented from November through March. Note: The 1845 Courthouse is handicapped accessible. (The usual rental is $100.00 per event and requires a $50.00 deposit to hold your date. Download the 1845 Rental Application for details. The Buy Now button at the right may be used to make payment using Pay Pal. If only paying the $50.00 deposit with this, change the amount once you are in your own Pay Pal.)  The Pay now button may be used to pay by credit or debit card.)

Located in the picturesque downtown Charlotte, the 1885 Courthouse is great for hosting your memorial, birthday party, family reunion, wedding (with space for an accompanying reception), or any other special event.
