In Our Room, Every Event Matters

About Us

The Heritage Room is positioned in the heart of Salisbury's downtown Historic District and offers beautiful views overlooking Easy Street, the F&M Financial Center garden, the Waterworks Visual Arts Center, and the Trolley Barn. Conveniently located in the Council Street Commons building in the first block of East Council Street, this historic structure was originally the home of McCanless Motor Company from 1924 to 1950, and later became a manufacturing facility for Stanley furniture.


In 1996, Karen and Henry Alexander began the challenge of renovating and restoring the building, which is presently home to KKA Architecture, Escape Central, and other businesses.


The latest development is the 2,600-square feet Heritage Room, a multi-functional space for numerous types of corporate and private events. Amenities include a catering kitchen, a large coat closet, convenient restrooms, and a 630-square feet balcony overlooking Easy Street and the surrounding area.


The Heritage Room was recently awarded both the NC Department of Commerce 2005 NC Main Street Award of Merit for Best Adaptive Reuse Project, and a 2006 award from the Salisbury Community Appearance Commission for Adaptive Reuse of an Existing Building for Council Street Commons.


The Heritage Room can accommodate events up to 177 people sitting or 231 standing, with room for more depending on the event! Check out our virtual tour to see photos of the historic-looking banquet hall, conference center, wedding venue, or whatever you need it to be! We can do small and large events and be comfortable.
