Stay T

o us, “We’ll meet you there!” means many different things. It means organizing a conference in one of our many professional spaces with ease so you can focus on that big presentation rather than stressful planning. It means cheering loudly at Fishbaugh Baseball Field or Memorial Stadium at Otterbein University, just two of the many sports venues rented daily. It means dancing the evening away at Everal Barn after a gorgeous wedding ceremony or gathering at the Homestead for congratulatory champagne. Westerville has a space for any and all occasions. We’ll see you here soon. We hope you stay awhile.
