When you plan on hosting your own wedding in a building you own, finishing out the event space takes on a very special importance. For building owner Matt Dieringer, that work will be showcased today when he weds his school teacher love, Amanda. Dierineger purchased the 160,000 square foot Davis-Linden Building in spring of 2015, which was the home of the Davis Sewing Machine Co. in the 1920’s. In 1924 the company changed it’s name to Huffman Manufacturing Company and started to manufacture bicycles.
The building is now filled with creative tenants that include woodworkers and cabinetmakers, a screen printing and graphic design company, a manufacturer of laser dyes, a nationally recognized sculptor/musician, a television studio, an interior design firm, and more.
The event space located on the 2nd floor is over 10,00 square feet with the original wood floors which for over 100 years old, are in pretty good condition. Large windows line both sides of the venue letting the natural light just bathe the room.
All decked out with 8 foot rounds the room should easily seat over 400 guests. A freight elevator just inside the entry way makes load in pretty easy and the building has plenty of carts to help and there is even a lift on site to assist with decorating.
Bathrooms have been updated with double sinks and 3 stalls in the ladies room and one stall and 2 urinals in the men’s room. Future plans call for a partition to make the room more intimate for smaller events. Other plans call for an improved entry to the space, that will give a direct walkway from the sizeable parking lot .
A moveable bar has been installed on one end of the room, just in front of a set of barn doors that make way for a perfect space for a buffet line for serving food. Several crystal chandeliers have been installed to add an elegance to the space.
For more information or to reserve the space for your special event contact Matt Dieringer at 937.489.8635 or [email protected]. The building is at the corner of Davis & Linden, street address is 400 Linden Ave, Dayton, OH 45403.
