Late autumn 2020

Save Your Date

A landmark over a century in the making

The Des Moines Heritage Center is an event venue located in the heart of the Historic East Village that features all the modern comforts you could ever imagine without sacrificing an ounce of the ambiance that’s been seasoned over more than a century. Host your next event at this iconic Des Moines landmark.

We offer three spaces for your event, each rich in vision and steeped in history.

The Depot

Constructed in 1909 by W.H. Brereton for the Des Moines Union Railway, the Depot once served as a passenger station. Today, the Dutch Revival architecture is singular in its splendor and doubles as a breathtaking backdrop for photos.

Accommodates 50 to 80 guests at tables.

The Center

This 7,500-square-foot, amenity-rich space is situated next to the Depot as a contemporary complement in the same timeless style. Inside, you’ll see historic works by local artists as the Capitol Building’s brilliant gold dome shines through the windows.

Accommodates 300 guests at tables, 400 theater-style.
