About Us

A Historic Site for your Historic Event

The Historic Calcasieu Marine National Bank and the Historic Cash & Carry Building are newly renovated for adaptive reuse. Nestled in historic downtown Lake Charles, our two locations emanate both enchantment and charm. With affairs ranging from formal ceremonies to informal social gatherings, our properties excel at creating atmospheres that center around warmth and reflection.

Whether admiring the ornate detail that is the architecture of the Calcasieu Marine National Bank, or basking in the sun's rays as they pour through the clerestory at the Cash & Carry building, your guests will be captivated by the breathtaking surroundings of your historic event.

We invite you to experience Southwest Louisiana's "newest" event centers. Our properties complement any occasion, be it elegant and intimate in our Main Vault or rustic and old world in the Cash & Carry. Wow your guests with a glimpse into our past while celebrating your historic present.

For more information about our event centers or to arrange a viewing, please call for an appointment.
