HISTORIC SPACE + MODERN LUXURY 

The 50,000 square foot warehouse we now call, company 251 was founded by Cyrus McCormick, who invented the first commercially successful mechanical reaper + in 1851 co-founded the McCormick Reaper Works, which would merge with the Deering Harvester Company in 1906 to become the International Harvester Corporation. We have transformed this historic 1908 buidling into a modern space featuring exposed brick walls, wood columns, crystal + iron chandeliers, grand marble bars, large windows + an industrial overhead door bringing lots of natural light to this 20,000 sq. ft. raw space. Renovations include two private suites for the bride + groom, one suite includes a 12-foot-long marble counter, which is perfect for getting ready at our venue; the other room is the ideal groom’s suite that is furnished with a tv, vintage games + a whiskey bar.
