Share your special day with us!
Housed in a picturesque building that is on on the National Register of Historic Places, our great room features 1,600 square feet of open space with 18-foot ceilings. It is lined with 10-foot windows that let in ample natural light and a beautiful view of the surrounding maple trees. Our unique wedding venue captures an artistic yet elegant vibe that is distinctly Portland. It is perfect for a medium sized ceremony, reception or both. Our great room is a special space that has been used for wonderful events since it's construction in 1918. From Woody Guthrie concerts in the 1940s to swing dancing in the 1980s, to the rich array of record productions and live music events since it became the Hallowed Halls, the room is steeped in a history of passionate art and the enjoyment of life. Fill it with beautiful décor, food, music and guests, and it will transform into the wedding venue of your dreams. We opened The Hallowed Halls to help create a capable and unique experience for all of our guests, no matter what services you use.
