Coming Together for Treasured Moments
Host an event to remember at a venue you and your guests will never forget. Laurel Hall, in all of its opulence and splendor, was built as a family home with an emphasis on being a place for them to entertain. Every foot of the space was designed and constructed to fill its visitors with awe – an effect that is just as prevalent today as it was in 1916 when it was constructed. In the early 1900s Laurel Hall stood as a source of grandeur and gossip – with the stories of the extravagant parties thrown and rumors of the owner’s scandalous antics the talk of Indianapolis. Over a century later, the mansion still stands as a landmark of entertaining in Central Indiana.
Entertaining your guests with a social event at Laurel Hall is the perfect way to add a wow factor to any event. Whether you’re hosting a sweet 16, a baby shower, a 50th anniversary, or looking for a reason to get dressed up and celebrate life, Laurel Hall can elevate your event.
