View the outdoors at Gillespie Center
The Gillespie Center in Mound opened in 2001 and provides a great place for the community to gather. The Gillespie Center is a non-profit community center and senior center. The center has programs for senior citizens and services as well as serves as a community center for weddings, celebrations, banquets, business seminars and other events.
Our wedding rentals have been changing. People are using our building for both the wedding ceremony and the reception. Because we have additional rooms of various sizes, we can cater to different styles of weddings and rehearsal dinners. Our large front lobby with gas fireplace is a nice setting for greeting guests. It also works perfectly for a cocktail and hors d’oeuvre setting.
An outdoor deck at The Gillespie Center overlooks Lost Lake Channel and the wooded area. Our outdoor area also includes numerous trees, flowers and wildlife in a natural setting. We have an in-house wedding coordinator available for consultation by the hour. We offer a large variety of services such as ceiling draping, Minister or Justice of the Peace, variety of caterers as well as suggestions for music, flowers, photography and more.
We love to work with clients to customize their event.
