Inside the Emerson

Weaver Room

Named after an exceptional volunteer, Marty Weaver, the Weaver Room is perfect for more intimate gatherings, such as meetings, workshops, and book clubs. At 1,128 square feet, the space boasts high ceilings and large windows that provide natural light to make the private venue feel open, spacious, and welcoming.

A small, attached kitchen allows for simple catering and food prep. As the Weaver Room is also a gallery space, the walls are adorned with contemporary art. The result: a location with an elegant appeal, perfect for wedding showers, dance recitals, and poetry readings.

To schedule a tour, email our Director of Operations or call (406) 587-9797, ext. 101.

Please note: the Weaver Room is on the second floor of the Emerson, and currently not wheelchair accessible.
