Weddings at the Historic Depot
Who We Are...
The Historic Union Pacific Depot was built in 1929 as the passenger station for the Union Pacific Railroad. It was designed by renowned architect, Gilbert Stanley Underwood and is on the Kansas Historic Register. Saved from the wrecking ball in 2012 by the Marysville Union Pacific Depot Preservation Society it serves as a beautiful venue for the city and for private events.
What We Do
AS PART OF OUR WEDDING PACKAGES...
We make sure your special day is booked and reserved from 9 a.m. the day before the wedding until noon the day after the wedding. We not only have the tables and chairs set up and the linens in place but we also complete the table setting at your request. We set up the buffet tables complete with the lit table skirts and make sure everything is ready for the caterer. And the best thing .....we clean up after you have completed your celebration.
