Rentable Space

Unfortunately due to current restrictions and our desire to keep our community safe & healthy, our rentable spaces are unavailable until further notice. 

The St. Louis County Depot has rentable space! We offer room for small-to-medium sized gatherings in unique spaces right in the heart of Duluth’s Downtown and adjacent to the waterfront.

Currently, we offer three spaces:

The Boardroom

Located on the Fourth floor of the original Union Depot, amid the world-class rotating Duluth Art Institute exhibition spaces, the boardroom has elevator access, Wifi, projector and screen, and teleconference technologies. The boardroom comfortably fits 18 around the oak board table, but has seating room for 25. The boardroom overlooks Michigan Street with large windows, and has a view of the Duluth Public Library and the Duluth Civic Center, including City Hall and the County Courthouse. You may bring in ready to eat food and beverage, and there is a counter area to stage these items.

The Great Hall is a large, open space with spectacular 80-foot ceilings, original terracotta flooring, two original fireplaces, a portico entrance, and architectural details abounding! It is a wonderful space for community events, fundraisers, special exhibits, speakers, and educational seminars.
