Preserved masonry, windows, and industrial beams offer a timeless atmosphere steeped in history. The West Room overlooks our 35’ Copper Vendome Still producing some of America’s finest Ryes, Bourbons, and memories for years to come. This space was home to the National Pin Company in 1873 followed by the Buttermilk Soap Factory in 1890.
Wrapped in the original historic windows with panoramic views of the courtyard and water tower. Imagine the hustle and bustle of the historic factory building now transformed into a marriage of old and new. Enjoy the romantic view from the private balcony overlooking the original home of the 1880s Barry Carriage and Wagon Works.
Situated just below our 130’ water tower, nestled against the factory building amid natural greenery and native wildflowers. This charming, unforgettable view is the perfect backdrop to host your most memorable events such as your ceremony or cocktail hour. In 1862, directly across the street was the home of the Korn and Junker Brewery, Valparaiso’s only pre-prohibition brewery at the time.
