Situated right off of Interstate 70 where the old Best Western Hotel used to sit, it's a beautiful building with several areas to accommodate any event. The roomy Foyer contains restrooms and an elevator to the upper level. Here, I've pictured the main hall plus the balcony.
On the balcony level there is more seating and a dressing room.
There is another smaller room also available with a kitchen area directly off of it.
I will include some contact info soon.

If you have never seen it, there is a mural painted on the wall in the Community room in the Municipal Building. Several local artists painted it, I'm thinking back in the 80's, but I'll have to check that to be sure. The pictures are all buildings and things from Altamont's past. It's amazing how good it still looks. If you haven't seen it, take a few minutes to check it out. I'll post more pictures from the wall in the next couple of weeks.
