The Foundry on the Fair Site is a very peculiar and unique event venue. One of the main things that sets it apart from other venues is its building. Originally built as a foundry where railroad spikes were casted, the building still retains a very industrial and bare feel to it, but it is still a very gorgeously maintained event space. The space is huge and can seat about 600 people in all. The Foundry can also be used in sections, depending on the kind of event and the number of people attending it. It is a very sought-after venue for weddings, especially, and has been the host to several wedding receptions over the years. For more information please see the website.
