The Story of the Wassell Room

This landmark of Terre Haute was once a dance hall in the 1940’s and 50’s for the youth of our community to gather with friends on the weekends or after the big football game. Now the fully restored Banquet Hall boasts the same charm and nostalgia of that era, proudly displaying pictures and memorabilia including: Wiley, Gerstmeyer, Garfield, Schulte and all other Wabash Valley High Schools. 

Perfect for your next company meeting, rehearsal dinner, baby shower, or holiday party, The Historic Wassell Inn Banquet Hall has everything you need! Offering amenities and services including: Private Buffet dining, a fully equipped projector and screen, a large stage, state of the art sound system, and an ambiance that cannot be duplicated!
