A bit about mercantile hall

Mercantile Hall is an urban & industrial chic event venue in Burlington, Wisconsin that sits squarely in the heart of the city’s historic downtown. From its construction before the turn of the century, the building has been transformed from a mercantile (old school mall) to a Montgomery Ward department store, and most recently a furniture store that was ravaged by a massive 5-alarm fire in 2014.

Following the fire, the most amazing discovery was found – the original hardwood floors hiding beneath a fireproof polyester floor covering. The warm tones of the wood floors and the exposed imperfect brick walls make the most beautiful setting that can take on a variety of looks including industrial, vintage, rustic, or modern.

So it was a fateful day just about two years later when the idea was born to take this amazing space and create something insanely special.

A team dedicated to service, community, and fun (along with a posse of friends, family, and community members) helped Mercantile Hall take its first full breath in the Spring of 2017.

Mercantile Hall is a venue where you can transform the space to the exact industrial chic look you have always envisioned for your big day!
