When talking to Rita Pritchard, proprietress of The 1902 Stock
Exchange & Public Square Opera House, you quickly understand that this small
discovered in 1991, and the beautiful building located on this corner, is
something that has, since then, almost consumed her life. Looking for a place to relocate her
Cobb County antiques shop she found Adairsville.
You will also find Maggie Mae's Tea Room located downstairs near the back of the gallery shops. The décor is pleasant and the aromas of imported tea and coffee are enticing. The tea room fare includes a chicken salad plate, three kinds of quiche and one hot daily special. Top off your lunch with a choice specialty dessert such as hummingbird cake, turtle cheese cake or scrumptious pie. Now, doesn't that sound like a much more pleasant meal than one of those fast-food places that line the interstate?
The Public Square Opera House
The Opera House is also available for wedding receptions. And, the beautiful curved staircase is a wonderful location for that lasting wedding shot of the bride and groom. A wedding consultant is available to assist bridal parties with their plans.
Additionally, the Opera House is a fine location for business meetings and other special gatherings. For buffet-style meals, 150 guests can be seated and for receptions, 300 people can be accommodated. There is also a more private room that can be reserved for bridal brunches, showers and business lunches for up to 14 people. Check The 1902 Stock Exchange or Contact them by email for additional information.
