About History Center

If you would like to make your next event truly historic, our facilities are available for rental, including the picturesque Shields Room, which served as the former city council chamber when the building was still Fort Wayne's city hall. This room has been used for lectures, conferences, retirement parties, weddings and wedding receptions, and can comfortably seat up to 160 guests banquet-style, or can accommodate up to 200 guests for cocktail parties or lectures. A smaller room is also available for more intimate events, and a board room is available for your business meetings or smaller gatherings.
