Rutland Center Church Now Available for Rent
After ten years of research and renovation, the historic Rutland Center Church is now available for individuals, families and groups that would appreciate its intimate atmosphere, suitable for small weddings, funerals, musical recitals, meetings, and other purposes. Use of the building is not limited to Town of Rutland residents.
It has a capacity of about 100 people. The well-insulated building is wired for light and electric heat, but may not be suitable for use during the coldest months of the year.
The church is located at 4528 Rome Corners Rd, three miles south of Oregon.
The parking lot is now complete but final finishing touches continue to be made this summer. These include building a garden surrounding the flag pole, creating a walkway from the parking lot to the church, and landscaping the new one-acre addition to the cemetery.
Individuals interested in renting the building should contact Dawn George, Clerk at 608-455-3925.
With the completion of the church renovation, interest turns to maintaining the historic building in its current condition. Funds set aside for the purpose will be used for painting and any repairs that may be needed. Contributions from individuals continue to be a major source of revenue for this purpose. Several grants from the Dane Country Cultural Affairs Commission and the Bryant Foundation in Stoughton, along with generous contributions from many individuals have have made the renovation possible.
The Rutland Center Church is owned by the Town of Rutland and not affiliated with any organized religion. No taxpayer funds are being used for its restoration. Committee members volunteer their labor without remuneration.
