All About Us
The Heritage Discovery Center is now being operated by the Columns Downtown to serve as an additional event venue for Downtown Altoona, PA with seating for 600.
Our venue is perfect for private, corporate, and public functions. In the past, we have had the pleasure of creating numerous business opportunities for caterers, florists, equipment suppliers, beverage distributors, wedding planners, janitorial services, and others while being the setting for a myriad of events.
The Center is not just a banquet hall; it is a heritage interpretation site and exhibit space as well! While design plans are complete for two permanent exhibits, the facility continues to be available as an event venue and hopes that the public will continue to use it as such once the displays are installed.
