History
Built in 1898 by the bohemian immigrant Wenceslaus S. Broz, the venue was designed by famous architect Cass Gilbert, who is well known for designing the Minnesota state capitol building. Its first role was a hotel, featuring 17 guest rooms, a dining room, a billiard hall, and the latest modern conveniences of the period, including hot and cold running water, bath and toilet facilities, steam heating, and gas lightings. It was considered to be among the finest hotel in the state. The building is most recently known as Schumacher’s, which operated from 1974 until 2005. It was often a destination for those looking to enjoy a four-star European dining experience. Since 2005, the facility has changed owners several times, all being passionately focused on restoring the hotel to its original beauty.

  • We booked our 10-10-2020 wedding at The Broz before we were even engaged, we just knew it was the perfect location! We were married outside, had the cocktail hour both inside and on the patio and the dinner was in the ballroom indoors, party continued in the brick room. Everything about this place is absolutely breathtaking and stunning. The amount of history and love felt here makes it very special. There’s SO many places for outstanding photo opportunities we didn’t know where to start! The staircase inside and the staircases outside, the balcony, the ramp, the bar — it’s all so so cool. We are so thankful for The Broz / Abri’tin team for allowing us to continue with our dream wedding in the covid era, it was the best party!!! We would highly recommend to anyone who wants a unique and quality space. [PHOTOS BY VOWHOUSE]
