Maki BallroomOnce the County Treasurer and Auditor's areas, the south half of the second floor has been transformed into the elegant Maki Ballroom.
The ballroom, named for the many contributions of Gunnar Maki to the restoration of the building, is now the site of many wedding receptions, meetings, performances, graduation parties, concerts, style shows, high teas, and seminars.
Equipped with a catering room, grand piano, and a quaint bar in the Circuit courtroom adjoining the ballroom, the ballroom seats 200 maximum. Upholstered seating, carpeting, floor-to-ceiling windows and nineteen chandeliers create a unique ambiance for any gathering in this historic setting.
Also available is the Lake Courtroom on the third level, restored to its original setting. With a capacity of 176, the Courtroom is available for wedding ceremonies, meetings, and various performances.
