WABASH – The Sanctuary of Wabash, at 492 N. Wabash St., is slated to officially open for business on Friday, May 1.
The Sanctuary of Wabash is a newly renovated Overnight Event Hub that was once the Wabash Street Methodist Church. Built in 1903, the Gothic Style church has been renovated to serve a new purpose of hosting guests for various occasions.
The church building was purchased in 2017 by Ben and Jennifer Bailey who began by making improvements to the façade and then moving on to a massive renovation to the interior.
“When we first stepped inside the building and stood in the sanctuary we were overcome with the beauty of the stained glass windows that surrounded us. As we renovated the church, we strived to keep the integrity and spirit that has always been with this property,” said Jennifer.
The Sanctuary of Wabash provides its guests with an unmatched experience, a news release said.
The space can host intimate weddings, rehearsal dinners, wedding day brunch, corporate meetings, family reunions, friends’ weekends, among others. “The Sanctuary has left its church past behind, but the building has a bright future ahead with modern conveniences throughout including a beautiful commercial kitchen.” Jennifer added.
The Sanctuary can sleep up to 16 guests and has a capacity of 50 people for events. To find out more visit www.thesanctuaryofwabash.com; or call 260-225-0055.
