Facilities available for rentals and private events

The historic Reno Methodist Church is a unique and quaint location for a wedding. It will accommodate up to 100 guests in the wooden pews and provides a picturesque background for your special day.

Non-profit groups from our community may use any of the buildings one time a year free of charge.

All buildings can be rented and must be reserved in advance.  Reservations and payment will secure the rental.
