"A dream in delray", An Eventective User from Deray beach, fl
A historical landmark, in the heart of downtown delray beach fl, old school square is a beautiful establishment perfect any party or event. Renovated from 1913 elementary and high school buildings, it is filled with charm. Our wedding reception was held at the venues the vintage gymnasium a few months back and it was a fair tail dream! Not only was the staff friendy, accommodating and personable but they went out of their way toe helpful! The day of celebration, the lawns were perfectly manicured and all the guests were in awe of the architecture, including the stone archways. Perfect location, just steps from the beach and famous Atlantic ave, it's perfection!
