    The History Center has three rooms available to rent for special events
    including weddings, wedding receptions, business dinners, fund-raisers, class
    reunions, retirement and anniversary parties, and cocktail receptions.
    The centerpiece of the museum, the Shields Room, is the former Old
    City Council Chambers and Courtroom. An extensive 2009 architectural
    renovation has restored its early 20th century Victorian beauty. Oak
    paneling, rich colors and 24kt gold-leaf stencils highlight the ornate 22-foot
    tin ceiling and expansive city views. Your guests may ascend the impressive
    Grand Staircase to the second floor entrance or use the convenient
    elevator. The Shields Room has a banquet seating capacity of 160 guests
    and 200 guests for stand-up receptions or lectures. Two smaller rooms, the
    Board Room and Orientation Room, can accommodate 30-50 people, respectively.
