The County Tower Building was originally designed by architect Albert Kahn in 1929 for the Union & Peoples Nations Bank. In 2011 the second floor was restored and original architectural elements were preserved including St. Genevieve rose marble in the lobby, paneled walnut wainscoating, side walls and pilasters of Italian Travertine marble. The ceiling, twenty-eight feet in height, is slightly curved and finished in modeled plaster designs. The leaded windows, designed after the Davanzati Palace in Florence, Italy, have bronze work, rose tinted translucent imported glass and a shield motif. The Tower Ballroom is an elegant space that is perfect for wedding and private parties or corporate banquets.
The Tower Ballroom can comfortably seat just over 150 people for a banquet style event. For a cocktail hour/reception style event where there are not as many tables and chairs the space can hold just over 200. Groups may use any catering company that they would like. There is not a kitchen in the Tower Building so all food will need to be cooked and prepared off site. This space is best suited for a buffet style dinner but it is possible to have a plated dinner if that is what the party prefers.
