Groveport Town Hall
Groveport Town Hall was constructed in 1876 as a jointly-owned project of the Village of Groveport, Madison Township, the Masonic Lodge and the Odd Fellows Lodge. The building has previously housed a hardware store, dry goods store, the Senior Center and Madison Township offices.
Today, Town Hall has been restored to its 1876 beauty, offering two floors for reservation by individuals and corporations, a historical museum featuring a section on early Canal history and the famous Horse Whisperer, an art gallery, nature center, and a cultural arts center with arts and education classes for the whole family.
The Cultural Arts Center offers arts and education classes at Town Hall and the Department's separate facility for children, Crooked Alley KidSpace, 630 Wirt Road. An art gallery and historical museum are also located on the first floor. The Heritage Nature Center, located in the historic Log House in Heritage Park, offers hands-on programming on topics of natural science.

Class registrants are asked to call 836-3333 to confirm if a class will be held, cancelled or relocated to another site:

A contract will be completed to reserve your room and identify policies for facility usage.

A security deposit is no longer collected, however the contract signer will continue to be legally and financially responsible for all damages incurred by participants of the group and must be present for the duration of the event.
The second floor auditorium/ballroom can accommodate tables and chairs for 115 persons, or theatre seating for 263. Hardwood floors, a full stage with lighting and drapery, and 16' high pressed tin ceilings create an ideal setting for a wedding or reception, family event or community activity.
