The Nella Grimm Fox Room has been in public use since 1858. It’s been the scene of courtroom drama, political debates, countless musical programs and thousands and thousands of community conversations. We are celebrating the room’s return to use (and showing off its shiny new look) with a wine & cheese reception. Discover the fabulous new Fox Room and how easy it is to use it for your events.
