History
This venue boasts quite the unique history. Back in 1911, M.M. “Dad” Lee founded his newspaper, The Florida Chief. Even through unforeseen events and natural disasters, this newspaper remained strong. It was in this building that the newspaper was birthed and grew strong in the community. Even though eventually the newspaper was sold and the name was changed, this venue still retains its ties to the past and celebrates the success of Lee’s paper. Today, this venue is pleased to be able to open its doors to couples seeking a unique and history-filled site to exchange their vows.
