The Banks Township Hall is located in downtown Ellsworth on Center Street. Ellsworth is located in northern Antrim County and is a 15 minute or less drive from the communities of Atwood, Norwood, Eastport, East Jordan, Central Lake and Charlevoix.
The Banks Township Hall has a spacious main dining hall that is a perfect setting for your wedding reception, graduation open house, retirement party or family reunion. Built in the 1930’s, the hall boasts rich, dark woodwork, a vaulted ceiling, oversized windows and original hardwood floors that make it well suited to either a formal or rustic event. The 3000 square foot main dining hall has endless arrangement possibilities with your choice of either rectangular tables, round tables or a mixture of both. The main dining hall is sized for gatherings of up to 200 people, depending on seating and table arrangement. Rental of the main dining hall for the day also includes the rental of a second, smaller room at ground level for the day.
The ground level room is a more informal space that is versatile enough to be used for small wedding receptions, bridal showers, meetings or training seminars. The ground level room has been updated and modernized in 2006 with new paint, blinds and tables for a more modern look and feel. This smaller room is where the bathrooms and kitchen are located. This room can be rented separately from the large upstairs main dining hall and is an economical choice for your next event. This room is sized for gatherings of up to 100 people, depending on seating and table arrangement.
Both the main dining hall and the ground level dining room are fully air-conditioned for total comfort.
