Duncan Hall: One Great Wedding Destination

Hall

Ballroom

2 Great Cities, 1 Great University, “One Great Wedding Destination”. Lafayette-West Lafayette, Indiana, is home to many fabulous wedding ceremony and reception venues that will make your day special.  One such location that is not only a beautiful venue, but has historical significance in our area is Thomas Duncan Hall. This Georgian, Colonial-style building was built as a meeting place for social, patriotic, charitable, educational and cultural events in the early-mid 1900s.

Thomas Duncan Hall is special in our family because it is the location where my sister, Jenny, married her husband, Tosh, over 11 years ago.  The site selection was a tough decision for my sister because she wanted eloquence with a touch of history and romance.  She and Tosh lived in Phoenix, Arizona, and they traveled back to tour different sites in the area.  When they visited Duncan Hall, they fell in love with the venue.  They loved the high ceilings, the handsome gothic windows and the large stage in the ballroom.  The additional parlor rooms speak of days gone by with the promise of creating lovely future memories.  The cherry on the cake was the acoustics.  They love dancing and music, and the ballroom has wonderful acoustics!

Their reception was so much fun!  The bridal party sat on the stage and overlooked the 150 guests.  They chose a local caterer to serve a buffet style meal which was set up in a small room off the ballroom.  (Note: there is a fully equipped kitchen along with a dinner service for up to 170 people and elegant silver serving pieces available for a reasonable rate.)  I gave the toast from the stage, which has gone down in history as one of the best toasts in our family history.  The whole room laughed as I shared my sister and my exploits over the course of our lives.  The laughter got everyone in the mood for an evening of dancing and music!   It was lovely!

Duncan Hall is a great venue for weddings and special events with its multiple rooms and ballroom. There is space for smaller parties ranging from 2 to 50, to their ballroom which can seat 220 people theater style.  The balcony also can seat 47.  The historical ambiance is one of a kind in the area.  It will truly make any special event stand out and be memorable.
