Hall Rental

Hall Rental

The Rutledge Borough Hall is located at 212 Unity Terrace and has two rental spaces available; an Upper Hall and Lower Hall. The Halls are commonly rented for birthdays, communions, confirmations, funeral luncheons, graduation parties, and showers.

The Halls are available to the general public; there is no need to have a connection to Rutledge Borough. Borough residents receive a discount on rentals once per year.

General Information

Rentals are typically available Friday – Sunday. Weekday rentals require approval from Borough Council except in cases of bereavement. Rentals in the Upper Hall may go as late as 9:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and as late as 7:00 p.m. on Sunday. Rentals in the Lower Hall may go as late as 5:00 p.m. 

A standard rental is 4 hours plus a 2-hour setup period prior to the start of the event and a 1-hour cleanup period after the event concludes. Additional setup time and event time can be requested. If approved, the additional time will be billed at an overtime rate of $150 per hour. Tables and chairs are included with the rental.

A refundable security deposit is required to secure a rental.

Rental Restrictions

Overlapping Rentals

Overlapping rentals in the Upper and Lower Hall are prohibited. The overlapping period is defined as only the rental window itself. The setup and cleanup periods are not considered when determining if a requested rental overlaps with an existing rental. Due to this restriction and the limited hours available, we can only allow one rental on Sundays.

Alcohol Service

Beer, wine, champagne and/or seltzers only may be served at functions. No mixed drinks are allowed! Alcohol can be served, not sold. Service of alcohol is the sole responsibility of the renters. If alcohol is to be served at the event, renters must obtain a Certificate of Liability for a minimum of $100,000 that names the Borough of Rutledge as additional insured.
