What was once a functional warehouse for beans + other produce on the south side of downtown — known as the N. K. Hurst building — has been transformed into a beautiful, rustic wedding and event venue.

The historic building, which has been family-owned since 1947, is now home to The Heirloom.

A partnership between the Hurst family and Crystal Catering, which has served the city for more than 40 years, makes for the perfect marriage to give the site a new life.

Elements from the building’s original 1906 construction — like brick walls, polished wood floors, and exposed beams help create a nostalgic ambiance with a historic industrial aesthetic.

Just steps away from Lucas Oil Stadium, The Heirloom is also located near downtown’s major hotels, the Indiana Convention Center, and White River State Park — and it offers skyline views, free parking, and outdoor terrace space.

This new venue can host up to 600 guests for reception-style corporate + social functions and up to 300 for seated wedding receptions. The Heirloom is here just in time for wedding season and is now open for site visits and bookings.
