• Hendricks County CVB celebrates new Crawley Business Center

    February 23, 2012 No comments

    The Hendricks County Convention and Visitors Bureau invites the public to share in a celebration marking a new era in the long history of its building on the Historic Hendricks County Courthouse Square at 8 W. Main St., Danville.

    Following an 18-month renovation project, the HCCVB will host an open house from 3 to 5 p.m. March 7 to showcase its new space upstairs honoring the family who owned the building for many years, Orville “Doc” and Mingle Crawley. The 3,500-square-foot Crawley Business Center’s history includes use as a former Moose Lodge and most notably as an old dance hall.

    “It is with great honor that we, the Commission and staff of the Hendricks County Convention and Visitors Bureau, are now able to supply Hendricks County and Danville with such a historic and functional building that dates back to 1848,” said Emory Lencke, executive director of the Hendricks County CVB. “For many of us, this has been a labor of love, as we have worked so long to restore the old dance hall back to a stage that will allow it to be used for many years to come.”

    The March 7 open house will include before and after pictures and tours of the Crawley Business Center and adjoining space that now serves as the HCCVB’s Marketing Department. Light hors d’oeuvres also will be served.

    The Crawley Business Center will primarily be used to host monthly Tourism Commission meetings, group tours and a handful of other public events.
