What's Happening at the Marketplace
The Party Place is now available for rental. Your special day deserves a historic celebration and the Party Place offers a unique, historic venue for your entertaining needs. Once home to the RomWeber Furniture Company, we completely restored the over 130 year old factory, enhancing the original construction elements that include hand hewn post beams, hard wood floors and lighting with a host of modern day amenities such as air conditioning. We are southeastern Indiana’s premier wedding venue. Host your ceremony and reception, all in one air conditioned location. Our brides room provides a plush, comfortable, rustic yet modern room dedicated to the bride and her party where makeup, hair and pre-ceremony relaxation can take place in historic luxury. Gentlemen, don’t despair, our grooms room provides luxurious leather sofa and love seat, vintage factory coffee table and refrigerator all surrounded by historic paneled walls.

It is ideal for anyone looking for a memorable venue, unlike any other in the area for their wedding, party or conference. We have a large collection of historic and vintage props available for renting. They include century old original work benches, factory carts and doors used in the RomWeber Furniture Company. We also have lighting options including chandeliers, head table backdrops, curtains, lighted hanging vintage ladder, screens and so much more to make your vision come true.

The Party Place easily accommodates 400 guests for a sit down dinner with an adjacent area for food serving and staging area with separate bar area. Clean and airy restrooms with a separate kitchen area with a private entrance are located in the adjoining lobby area. Adjacent outdoor area provides a perfect setting for additional entertaining and can easily be tented. A separate room for hosting the ceremony or to add a living room setting, with furniture, for your guests is available. 

With the ability to begin decorating the Wednesday before the event, brides can create their dream vision for their special day in an unhurried, leisurely fashion, eliminating stress and frustration. We provide total flexibility allowing your choice of caterers and table sizes along with many historic props available for rental. The end result is the dream wedding that she has been envisioning for years; let it come true at the Party Place.
