Weddings & reunions

The Historical Society of Vandalia-Butler also makes our beautiful site available for Weddings and Reunions:

  • Small Summer/Fall weddings in the 1860's one-room Brown School House or the late 1800's, 2-story Log House.  The capacity of either structure is very limited and would have to be determined and limited by the size and complexity of the occasion.

  • Summer / Fall Class or Family Reunions (picnics) can be held 'outdoors' in our Shelter House.  The covered area is limited in size, therefore weather is always a question.


Terms of Use:

  • Your group's donation to the Historical Society of Vandalia-Butler must be agreed upon and paid in full four weeks prior to the occasion.
  • There is no beer, alcohol or drugs allowed on the premises.
  • There are no cooking facilities on the grounds, therefore, catering or carry-in food is the only option.
  • There is only one restroom that is indoors and operational and two outdoor toilets.
  • Clean-up and returning tables and chairs to their original location is your responsibility.

Please contact us if you have any additional questions!
