The Murphysboro Event Center and The Old Firehouse Event Center have undergone years of meticulous renovation and restoration.  Both are now complete, and ready to accommodate any special occasion. The historic significance of each building is commemorated by a plaque adorning the front facade.  The plaque is one of distinction issued by the United States Department of Interior, recognizing its important place in America's history.

Dr. VanAcker has restored many architecturally significant buildings throughout the Southern Illinois region.  With his help, the newly renovated buildings maintain their historic integrity and house a variety of local businesses.  When you support our facilities you are supporting the renovation of Southern Illinois' historic buildings.

We invite you to celebrate your next event in one of Southern Illinois' architectural and historic
jewels, beautifully renovated with your special day in mind!
