The Bushnell Event Center is one of the leading venues for hosting weddings, ceremonies, corporate events, holiday parties, showers and other events in Downtown Springfield, Ohio. Built in 1893, the remarkable venue has led the way in hosting the most elegant events.

Our History

The Bushnell Building was built in three stages in 1893, 1903 and in1939. The building continues to be renovated internally to meet tenant needs. The Bushnell Building remains of the most impressive original structures to flank the city’s central square. It is a monument not only to the days of booming business in Springfield, but also to the civic involvement of one of Ohio’s great leaders.

Green Certification

The Bushnell Building is one of the oldest and largest buildings in the United States to become Platinum LEED certified by the U.S. Green Building Council.

Rooms Available

We have three rooms available at our venue – The Asa S. Bushnell Room, the Edward Wren Room and The Cellar. Our new outdoor ceremony area “The Rose” shows the unique venue we are committed to providing our guests. All four include distinct features, apart from a historical significance of having been built more than a century back. Our services and rates are the most competitive in the Springfield area.
