History

This venue is located in Chambers Creek Regional Park in Pierce County, which is comprised of 930 acres of surrounding land that started to take shape hundreds of years ago. Industrial development of the region began in the 1850s with lumber mills and small-scale timber activities. Pierce County first began operations on the property in the 1950s with development of small shops and gravel mine in the place where this venue exists today. The area has fully transformed and is now inhabited by public offices, government operations, recreational areas and championship golf courses.

  • Flexibility:
  • On top of a spectacular view and backdrop for the ceremony, the building itself is beautiful. There are moments inside as well as outside that provide great pictures either in a cozy nook or against an industrial concrete wall with light casting down from the skylights above. ESB has a private room for getting ready in: equipped with table, chairs, and a large mirror. ESB provides ceremony chairs that are set up to your layout, that do not require you to put away when your are done. The restrooms in the lobby are very nice. All in all, I highly recommend this venue for the exterior and interior views as well as the amenities that are provided.
