Speak With The Pros At Our Event Venue in Freeport, IL

Get the Party Started

Grand River Hall is located in downtown Freeport, Illinois in the historic Rawleigh building. A once bustling manufacturing facility of home goods, this 6th floor venue offers guests an immaculate river view with a hotel and other historical amenities within walking distance.

The abandoned 500,000 square-foot facility was built in 1914 with additions completed by the 1950s. Peter Alber bought Complex D from the City of Freeport in 2012 and has been renovating the building from the 1st floor up over the past five years. Peter's daughters, Holly & Shelly, envisioned a grand venue from the very beginning. They wanted a space where locals and tourists could gather to relive old memories or come make new ones. And so in the summer of 2017, renovations began to make their vision come to life. Call us today at 815-821-5247 to learn more.
