Aspecial occasion calls for a singularly spectacular venue. Celebrate your next milestone or momentous occasion at one of the finest Beaux Arts style architectural destinations in North America.

A National Historic Landmark, The Allen County Courthouse is renowned for its breathtaking murals, stunning Scagliola marble-esque flourishes and Italian Carrara marble staircases. The sweeping lawn and meticulously manicured gardens are ideal for both portrait and commercial photography.

Since the Courthouse was erected in 1902, downtown Fort Wayne has enjoyed a dramatic revitalization. In keeping with our city’s exciting growth and beautification, the grandeur of the original courthouse has been lovingly preserved. An eight-year, $8.6 million restoration project produced extraordinary results and recognition from the Daughters of the American Revolution for a remarkable effort in Historic Preservation.

Whether you’re planning a wedding, fundraiser or corporate event, the Allen County Courthouse is an unforgettable setting to gather and celebrate in timeless style.
