Altgeld Hall



While the exterior remains much as it did when the “Castle on the Hill” was completed in 1899, Altgeld Hall has been completely renovated to include amenities and technology to meet modern demands. The showpiece of the building, Altgeld Auditorium, is perfect for weddings and banquets, lectures or presentations. The Board Room and solarium are also available for smaller gatherings.
