The Hennepin was built in 1921. It has served a wide variety of needs over the years, including being a dance studio, a place to receive vocal lessons (the Andrews Sisters even took classes here!) and a hospitality center for veterans of World War II. Most recently, it was the home of Solera, an upscale event center. Hennepin Theatre Trust is building on that history by utilizing The Hennepin to host a variety of events, including weddings, corporate parties, corporate meetings, live music, live theatre and musical theatre classes for high school students, just to name a few.
