Courthouse exchange



Nestled right beside the Courthouse Exchange restaurant, our deck area is ideal for any number of special events. Flowers line the front of the gates while strung lights provide a soft ambient feel when the sun goes down. The space can be adjusted to suit your needs, whether those include live music or special seating arrangements. Bring games for a birthday bash or decorate for a gorgeous outdoor wedding. The possibilities are endless, and provide you with a comfortable, open area in which to enjoy the day. Catering options can come straight from the Courthouse Exchange or from one of the several locales offered by the McClain Restaurant Group right on the Square. Parking can be found in front or behind, allowing for easy access before and after your event.
