THE VENUE HISTORY:
The Robinson Manor was built in 1909 by Dr. Robinson as a community hospital. In the 1950s the building was purchased by the Elks and became the Allegan Elks Lodge. It was sold in 2010 and sat vacant until our family saw this gem of a building and fell in love with the rich history and unique architecture.
In 2017 we took a leap of faith and purchased the building. Soon after the purchase we started the task of renovating it. We thought the best use for this facility was to use it to benefit the community as it had for over 100 years. What better way to do this than to create a beautiful space that the local community and neighboring communities could hold their weddings, receptions, birthday parties, reunions, meetings, conferences, funerals, or the many other uses for the space.
In addition to renting the space. We hope to host our own community events. Outdoor/indoor family friendly music, community fundraisers, dances, themed parties, haunted house, Santa visit during Christmas. We want this space to be a place of gathering and happiness for everyone who visits.
