The Stables Venue in High Demand

Originally built in 1909 and on the National Register of Historic Places along with the cemetery, the stables formerly housed the horses that transported caskets to the cemetery. Once automobiles took the place of the horses, the stables were used primarily for storage. The Wyuka Historical Foundation completed a nearly $750,000 historical renovation in early 2015 through an 80/02 federal grant made possible in conjunction with the Nebraska Department of Roads.

Now the renovated and re-purposed space offers a central Lincoln location with ample parking for events such as weddings and receptions, meetings, company retreats, craft fairs, family memorial gatherings, and graduation, holiday and other appropriate parties.   Community Crops has hosted their annual plant sales and fund raisers twice finding the unique indoor and courtyard space perfect for their needs.

The Stables has two rooms that can accommodate 60 people each, one with restrooms and efficiency kitchen with a refrigerator and a microwave.  In addition there is a large open courtyard surrounded by covered bays. Video media and WiFi available in both meeting rooms and the Stables is accessible.  Third party catering allowed as well as self-catering. Any serving of alcohol must be by licensed vendors.

Available seven days a week with reasonable rental rates.  Learn Contact:  (402)525-6765
