Established in 1906
Originally built by the Fraternal Order of Eagles, a service club that started in Seattle, the building opened in 1906. The elegant ballroom was designed to accommodate large pubic gatherings and became an immediate success. It became the most popular dance and event venue in Snohomish County and drew from all the surrounding communities. Many memorable events occurred within the walls of this amazing structure, including the annual Fireman’s Ball. (My 92 year old mom still smiles when she talks about it).
Over the years membership in the Eagles Club declined and the structure slowly fell into disrepair.
In 2005 it was sold to a Snohomish native that had already restored numerous buildings in this historic Victorian town. He was determined to bring the building back to its’ original grandeur while updating and adding all new amenities. It was a labor of love and was to be his last historic building restoration project.
After a complete, top to bottom restoration, this National Historic Registry building made its grand debut again, 110 years after it was built, as the Feather Ballroom.
Today the venue hosts weddings, celebrations, parties and gatherings of all kind. It’s close proximity to Seattle makes it a perfect, affordable yet elegant alternative to downtown Seattle wedding and event facilities.
