Historic Flair In historic Marshall, groups can stroll the town’s picturesque streets lined with antique shops, restaurants and museums.
For those looking for a venue rich in history, Schuler’s Restaurant and Pub offers seven meeting rooms and can host meetings for two to 200 people. The 105-year-old restaurant is still family-owned and offers groups the choice of a strolling reception, passed apps, plated meals or buffet. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the building, and a full range of audio-visual equipment is offered.
“Our staff handles all of the event details, from custom room setup to menu planning,” says Shondel Neal, Schuler’s vice president and sales director. “Wine pairings/tastings and tours of the restaurant are also available with advance planning.”
Another distinctive venue is the Bohm Theatre in Albion. After being “asleep” for the past six years, according to its executive director, Lee-Perry Belleau, the Bohm is scheduling workshops and conferences for 2015, following a $3.7 million restoration that brought the movie theater back to its early 20thcentury glory. Able to seat 398 in the auditorium and 50 at tables and chairs onstage, Belleau says that planners will find a state-of-the-art projection system, a working stage with lighting and sound and new comfortable seating nestled in a 1920s ambiance.
