The building started out as part of the Featherbone Corset Factory, built in the 1910. The entire space was lined with sewing machines where seamstresses sewed ruffles onto the top of corsets. After the factory closed, the building became Hunerjager Department Store then a pharmacy with a dime store out front. Now, 19 North is a gorgeous 11,000 sqft venue located above Froehlich's charming Kitchen & Pantry restaurant. With the original wood floors and over 800 tin ceiling tiles still intact and beautifully restored, this space embodies a rustic opulence that offers couples the feel of a big city event in a quaint village. At the top of the grand staircase in the all-glass foyer, guests will find a tall corridor, flanked by two sets of massive, 12 foot turn-of-the-century doors, leading to a grand ballroom, complete with a show-stopping chandelier.
