Built around 1909, this 15,000 square foot warehouse served as three businesses for the partners simultaneously: Hugh Perry sold plumbing, Mackey dealt in lumber, and Mr. Prior worked electrical. The Mackey family owned the building until 1985 when it was sold to Wallace Smith who operated Shamrock Kiddie Rides in the space for thirty years. Gil Gillis purchased the building in 2016 and began extensive restoration to repurpose the building as an event venue for small parties, weddings, and receptions. The former shop area that once rang with the sounds of saws and planers served as Gillis’ personal work studio for his photography and hot wax paintings until he sold the building in 2022. Now, under new ownership and yet another renovation, the space has transformed into a special event venue that mixes southern grace and history with urban flair.
