“Great” for a Reason: Rent WPAOG’s Great Hall

There is a lot to worry about when you are getting married. You worry about sending out invitations. You worry about rain on your dream day. You worry about your uncle Lou embarrassing your new spouse in the receiving line. But if you rent WPAOG’s Great Hall, you need not worry about having the perfect setting for your wedding reception.  RENTAL INFO

Located on the grounds of the James K. Herbert Alumni Center, the Great Hall is really three venues in Class of '46 Great Hall in Alumni Centerone. First, there are the stunning grounds outside of the Great Hall. The Class of ’70 fountain, the colorful gardens, and nearby Lusk Reservoir make perfect settings for those keepsake wedding photos. Once inside the Great Hall, there are two areas in which you and your guests can meet and mingle. First, there is the Class of ’64 Reception Hall, which features a coat room, a bar area, an open rotunda, and a grand staircase leading to a second floor seating area. Then, of course, there is the Class of ’46 Great Hall itself. This 3,000-plus square-foot, two-level ballroom features floor-to-ceiling windows, gleaming hardwood floors, leather sofas and overstuffed chairs, matching semi-spiral staircases, and three fireplaces—including a majestic stone hearth directly across from the Hall’s double-door entrance. The Hall accommodates up to 120 guests with a dance floor (160 without dance floor), or if you interested in just a cocktail reception after the ceremony, the Hall will hold up to 200 guests.

The Great Hall is available year-round and can be rented for Class reunions, graduation parties, military promotion or retirement ceremonies, and more. But if you are just interested in having your wedding reception here, the Great Hall is now available for those not affiliated with West Point or active military (other private social functions are reserved for Regular Members of WPAOG, Associate Members, and cadets of the United States Military Academy). Best of all, WPAOG’s Event Coordinator will assist you in selecting a caterer and direct your floral, decoration, music, and photographic services in the proper use of the Great Hall, so all you’ll have to do is enjoy your special day. And, in case you were worried about it, the Herbert Alumni Center offers reserved parking in the rear of the building, and plenty of public parking is available just south of the building along Mills Road.
