  Bride and Groom


Your wedding at the Historic L&N Depot . . . taking your vows or enjoying your reception surrounded by the ambiance of this historic setting. The opportunities are only limited by your imagination. How about an outdoor wedding? Or a small reception on a dining car? You can even take your vows on the back of the Presidential Car if you like. We’ve got great ideas for special events too … parties, meetings, proms, luncheons, receptions and more.


The Depot represents a unique and elegant atmosphere for special occasions. Accommodations include a special room designed for catering set-up with it’s own discreet entrance. Variable lighting will set the tone for events and a service bar in the Meeting/Reception room may be used for food/beverage service, guest check-in, material distribution and many other purposes.

DAYTIME EVENTS such as luncheons, meetings, training sessions, corporate retreats or even family reunions may be scheduled in the Depot, including the Lobby and Meeting/Reception Room.

EVENING EVENTS such as wedding receptions, dinners, cocktail parties, anniversary parties, rehearsal dinners and birthday parties take on an added elegance when hosted in the L&N Depot or the Duncan Hines Dining Car.  A perfect venue for events up to 180 attendees (subtract 20 guests for a dance area and 30 for a band)

    We were married in as small intimate ceremony and are looking at having a large wedding reception on January 17,2015 for our family and friends. We were wondering if your facility was available that day? If so what is your pricing? What all do you offer?

    I am interested in renting your facility for a bridal shower on April 12th around 1 PM or 2 PM. It would be approx. 30 individuals. Can you please provide me a cost to do this? Do you cater? Am I allowed to bring in outside foods and drinks? Do you have tables and chairs available? Thanks so much!

    Laura Rogers
