Located next to Bennett Park, the 1845 courthouse is a perfect venue for a small intimate affair. The room is an open floor plan and can seat 90 people. 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 November through March. (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. This Buy Now button may be used to make payment. If only paying the $50.00 deposit with this, change the amount once you are in your own Pay Pal.)
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. The Courtroom seats approximately 190 people. (The rental fee depends on what all is rented and requires a $100.00 deposit to hold your date. Download the 1885 Rental Application for details. This Buy Now button may be used to make payment. Enter the amount of payment once in your own Pay Pal, which might be the $100.00 deposit, the actual rental fee, or the total of both.)
