  • The Heritage Centre’s Great Hall is one of the top wedding and event spaces in southern Manitoba.
  • Elaborate timber details at corbels, columns, and trusses echo those commonly used in Renaissance period civic buildings in 16th century Northern Europe
  • Trusses span a 32’ wide center aisle. A 14’ wide mezzanine circles the space, sixteen feet above the main floor. The big center stair set is a favourite setting for wedding party photos.
  • The timber frame supports a south-facing curtain wall window which washes the interior with light during the day. At night, up-lighting reflects off the truss work and ceilings to create a charmed feeling for those celebrating below.
