How long does the event venue stay open?

Historic Ann’s 1893 is located in a historic district and zoning prohibits loud outdoor sounds after 11pm.

The venue closes officially at 11pm each evening. Outdoor Sounds and Lights must shut down at this time.

If you have guests lingering, please encourage them to begin leaving. All guests must vacate the premises by 11pm unless prior arrangements have been made and approved.

For those adding overnight stays, more information will be provided to you on house rules after hours.

There are a number of places in Union City which stay open later and may accommodate you if your celebrating must run into the wee hours.

What’s Included in the Price and How it Works

We include more in our prices than any other venue you will find. Walk in and your event is ready to go at an agreed upon setup. No additional fees!!! Just bring the food, drink, and the people and we do the rest! We also tear down everything when the event concludes. All we ask is that you take out the trash and anything you brought in with you.

We do allow alchol on the premises, and we do allow event planners to bring in their own.

If you are serving alcohol, we require you to purchase event insurance for the estimated number of guests and provide a copy prior to entering the dwelling on the day of the event.

We recommend Union City Insurance. They are familiar with our venue and are very reasonable and easy to work with.

If you are serving alcohol, we require a licensed bartender be present.

Historic Ann’s currently does not supply catering; however, we can supply venue tables and chairs.

For smaller events, we do allow event planners to bring in food, but a section of your contract will include house rules for food consumption, trash, etc.., as you will be responsible for complying with catering rules, just as if you were a licensed caterer.

With catering, most caterers supply all linens, dishes, silverware, food, and service staff. Caterers are responsible for removing all food and trash related to catering. Caterers also clean up food service areas. Any outside caterers must sign a contract for Historic Ann’s 1893 and provide a copy of their license prior to entering the dwelling on the day of your event.


The venue will provide staff for the initial setup of tables, chairs, and table cloths; however, take downs will not be included. Any additional cleaning or staff help for on site needs are an add on to the cost, but you can discuss more about this with the owners.

Historic Ann’s 1893 is located in a historic and residential neighborhood. As such, there is no dedicated parking lot and plenty of street parking. It is recommended that guests park on Morgan or Exchange Streets and not East Main which is a busier street.

Please help us by providing your guests with parking instructions.

Please do NOT park in church parking lots near the venue as they may have events we are unaware of and we do not have permission to use those lots. Park there at your own risk and users may be towed.

Please do NOT park in the driveway or near the driveway at Historic Ann’s 1893 so that caterers have plenty of room to load in the base door.

Please instruct guests to enter through our front door.
