Thank you for the review of the former Heard-Craig Auditorium. Although the auditorium was sold to the First United Methodist Church last year, it continues to be a viable large wedding reception venue combined with a Heard-Craig GARDEN WEDDING (favorite location in the City).

I have attended many events here, and we hosted my daughter's wedding reception here -- the staff is awesome, the venue is lovely, and they are very accommodating.
