Our History

Roots of the Banquet Center

The Vision

Wilkshire Banquet Center was founded in December 2011 and is the vision of Tom and Martha Simon.  They desired to fill the need of making a banquet hall available in the Bolivar/Wilkshire Hills area in Northern Ohio.  Martha also wanted a place to display her lifelong collection of dollhouses.

You can see the archived write-up in the Times Reporter newspaper.

Future site of Wilkshire Banquet Center



The banquet center opened in April of 2012 for our first Open House and Bridal Show.  The event drew hundreds of local residents who sampled the best the area has to offer in banquet and wedding services.  The Times Reporter featured our business on the front page of the paper edition.
