Nonprofit Community Event Venue
Earlham, Iowa

Restored inside and out, our historic event venue Bricker-Price Block serves as the cornerstone for renewed community life in Earlham and Madison County, extending a friendly welcome to guests from Central Iowa and beyond.

Upstairs, the Hadley Family Social Club, with its classic arched windows, tall tin ceilings and refinished wood floors, is a beautiful setting for birthday parties, weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners, wedding or bridal showers, fundraisers, corporate meetings and any other special life events.

Our community event venue is also host to unique events like our annual Harvest Gathering Farm-to-Table Dinner and our Family-Friendly & Late Night Trivia Events. The proceeds from these events go right back to providing affordable programming for our youth during our Kid’s Club Summer Camps and for our local senior citizens through our Senior Speaker Series.

If you are interested in giving to our cause and helping expand programming, a donation to our community event venue is tax deductible as Bricker-Price Block is a 501(c)3 nonprofit.
