Charlotte Wedding Venue: The Charlotte Trolley Museum


Melissa G. Lamkin

Cute. Cute. Cute. Fun. Fun. Fun. I heard the Charlotte Trolley Museum hosted events so I went to check it out yesterday. What a great space for smaller ceremonies, receptions, or rehearsal dinners in the heart of South End on South Tryon Street.

It's also home to an original trolley car, Car #1339, made in 1910. Inside the car are the original rattan seats as well as photos and imagery of trolley cars and conductors making it a great space for wedding party photo ops! (Charlotte's only original electric trolley car that still in full working order — Car #85 — is currently in storage until there are tracks to run it on.)

All the museum exhibits within the space can be moved to open the floor space for events. The space holds 200 standing and 120 seated. Add in the adjoining exterior plaza for 275 standing and 170 seated. The museum does have 4-foot rectangular, five-foot folding round, and six-foot rectangular tables that will be included with rental fees. A parking lot for guest parking is nearby or guests can simply hop on the light rail.

About Hannah

There are few things Hannah loves more than Southern charm, classic Ray Ban aviators, a string of pearls, and Sunday afternoons. An admirer of all things lovely and especially the written word, she put her English degree to good use after graduating from UNC Chapel Hill and moved to Charleston where she dove head first into the journalism scene, covering everything from boutique openings to café launches. But the Old North State (and a fiancé of her own) called her back home and now she’s using her experience, creativity and knowledge to write about what she loves most—love.
