The Nineteenth Century Charitable Association's beautiful Oak Park Landmark building has served the surrounding communities since its construction in 1928. The Classical Revival 2-story building exudes historical charm, inspiring awe in every guest. The Nineteenth Century Club offers three event spaces for your big day. With hanging chandeliers, a full stage, original hardwood floors, and a lofty ceiling, the Margaret Houck Ballroom is a refined and classy space for your ceremony or reception. Windows lined up on both sides of the ballroom bring plenty of light in, casting an iridescent glow over the hardwood floors. For small to medium sized parties, consider the South Dining Room or the North Dining Room. Cozy yet elegant, these two rooms offer the perfect atmosphere for a warm celebration.
