Rothschild Pavilion

Extraordinary EventsWedding Reception Rothschild Pavilion

Etch your event into the script of history with this truly unique venue. A showplace for more than a century, the Historic Rothschild Pavilion, built in 1911, features a 6,760 square foot dance floor constructed of 1 ½” inch maple strips supported by 24 large railcar springs atop granite stone foundations. These springs give the vast floor flexibility and strength, while providing a wonderful surface for dancing. The "floating" dance floor is believed to be the only one of its kind in the entire United States.  The Rothschild Pavilion's spacious layout, built in bar, hardwood floors, fireplace, wood tones, brick accents, and mezzanine, make this venue the perfect place for any event with it's unequaled warmth and beauty that cannot be recreated.
