Rent Alice Hardie Stevens Center
Beautiful New Bar

This exceptional facility, named for the Laramie woman whose extraordinary efforts were integral to the preservation of the historic Ivinson Mansion and grounds, is perfect for meetings, receptions, wedding and anniversary celebrations, parties and other special events. It may be rented by itself or as part of a package with our other rental facilities.

The Center includes a large main room with a wooden floor (perfect for dancing), a catering kitchen, a stage, and three French doors that open to a lush lawn. The use of this West lawn is included in your rental and can literally double your useable space. Tents may be erected on the lawn, but care must be taken so that trees and the sprinkler system are not harmed. Depending upon the style and size of your tent, the city may require a permit. Check with the museum staff about the permit.

The AHSC offers three public bathrooms which include bridal/family dressing space with easy access to weddings and receptions on the East Lawn. Fifteen 8’ long tables, two 6’ long tables, eighteen 60”round tables, and 100 banquet chairs are also included in your rental. We do not provide linens or dishes. The kitchen has two stoves with ovens, refrigerators, and microwave ovens. Coffee pots (32-cup and 100-cup sizes) and glass plate/cup sets are available for your use. The Alice Hardie Stevens Center now showcases an extraordinary 1910 historic sideboard from which you can serve foods or drinks. You are responsible for its care.

Optimal occupancy for the Center is between 75 and 95 people, if the room is set with chairs and tables. Up to 200 persons can circulate if the room is sparsely furnished. We ask your consideration for area residents who have requested that noise quiets down after 11:00 p.m. No smoking is allowed inside the facility. Ash cans are posted outside of the building. AHSC renters are responsible for their own set-up and clean-up, but the museum’s caretaker can provide set-up for $25 per area or clean-up for $100. Make arrangements with our Museum staff for such services.

Decorations may be hung in the AHSC using putty, string or fishing line hung from the picture rail around the room. To preserve the historic integrity of the building, no tape or nails are allowed on the walls. Mini-lights and tulle swaged from the railing and the hooks near the ceiling lights are allowed and add a lovely elegance to the reception room. Musical equipment and a DJ are fine, and the stage provides an optimal place for set-up.

Dimensions: Room is 32' x 45.5'; Stage is 10' x 19'
