9th Street Abbey

No matter what type of party you're planning -- whether it's the company holiday party, corporate retreat, cocktail party, birthday dinner, wedding ceremony and reception, The Abbey makes a stunning backdrop for your event. The courtyard patio -- located between the Abbey building and the old Rectory -- boasts heirloom rose gardens, fountains, and an outside bar. It's the ideal way to incorporate the outdoors in your event.

Built in the 1850's, the building now known as the 9th Street Abbey has enjoyed a long varied past. Built as St. Paul's German Evangelical Church, the original congregation left in 1911. In 1924 part of St. John Nepomuk, located on Tucker & Lafayette Streets, occupied the building as Holy Trinity Slovak Church until 1986. Patty Long Catering, Inc. bought the building and converted into a special events venue in 1992.
