NEW BUSINESS: 314 Exchange

-A A +A

Physical address: 314 Mount Mercy, Pewee Valley

Who we are:  Laura and Kevin Hall recently opened a premium event space right next to the Pewee Valley City Hall. The Halls, who have run The Family Tree care services for 27 years.The building originally was a railroad station and then a telephone exchange. The name and façade for the building were taken from that time. The building has been expanded into a 3,500-square-foot event space for multiple uses. The space includes a kitchen and rooms upstairs. It’s also just a few steps away from Pewee Valley’s Central Park, which is the site of frequent weddings.

What we do: 314 Exchange has been host to various weddings, birthday parties and business meetings. It has also hosted an art show and a community indoor yard sale. June and September 2014 are already booked for weddings. Future plans include events with caterers for slow wedding months, a possible food truck event, a farmer’s market on the building’s side yard and music shows. The exchange rents for $1,500 for all day use on Saturday’s, and the Halls said affordable rates could be found during the week as well. Pricing includes the use of the Exchange’s tables, chairs and linens.

What we say: “We’re open to working with people as well,” Laura Hall said. “Especially if they want to have a regular event.”

Hours: Variable availability, but book space as much in advance as possible.
