1. An Affordable Modern Event Venue

The Thrasher-Horne Conference Center is a modern space that provides a contemporary backdrop for any type of event you’re planning to host. You’ll receive five-star service at a price you or your organization can afford, no matter the size or style of occasion. Our flexible spaces allow you to create the environment you envision, whether that’s for an intimate wedding or your company’s important meeting.

2. Customizable Event Rental Spaces and a Full Range of Amenities

Our special event spaces give you five versatile rooms that can accommodate the layout or format you need to make your event match your vision. The Thrasher-Horne Center has more than 6,135 square feet, including our grand room for large groups and multipurpose rooms with movable wall partitions for the ultimate flexibility.

Rental of all of our multipurpose rooms include a variety of seating options, plenty of free parking, adjustable lighting and more. Also included is custom setup and breakdown of furnishings, and your choice of table sizes and shapes, plus cushioned chairs. Each room also has independently controlled lighting and temperature, and on-site security is also available.
