302 South Grant Street
Built in 1900 by German craftsmen, this former church stands as a symbol of Hinsdale’s spirit and sense of community. It has served not only as a church, but also as office space and a preschool. The building was saved from demolition through the efforts of the Hinsdale Historical Society, government officials, and residents. Now on the National Register of Historic Places, Immanuel Hall continues to serve the community as a place available for public use.
Immanuel Hall is the perfect place to host small community events such as nonprofit meetings or fundraisers; business presentations, workshops, or conferences; club gatherings; musical concerts or recitals; or any public program or forum.
Immanuel Hall is not available for private weddings (ceremony and reception), bridal or baby showers, birthday parties, or other private events or parties.
