Originally known as Parks Woodworking Machine Co., the space was built in 1902 as part of the manufacturer’s expansion in Northside. It was continuously used as a production facility until the late 1980’s when it was converted into shared artist studios and meeting space. As time passed the historic structure deteriorated and required significant repairs. Grey Rock Development, owned by Sarah Thomas and Chris Pohlar, began the 3-year renovation and conversion in 2016. The Factory Events is a love letter to historic preservation and adaptive reuse. Modern design and attention to detail has transformed a dilapidated industrial building into a beautiful, timeless space for all of life’s celebrations.
