A place where history and future are present.
Main Street Abbey is located in the cozy, safe, small town of beautiful Columbia, IL.

Reconstructed carefully, with attention to detail, the Abbey is a crossroads of nostalgic history and state of the art lighting/technology. Just fifteen minutes from downtown St. Louis, MO, MSA is a unique place to host your event.

Meet the Event Manager
Hi! My name is Dustin Row. I have many roles: a dad, a musician, a veteran, the president of a not-for-profit organization, and now a venue manager for the unique Main Street Abbey in Columbia, Illinois. My event style is state of the art, detailed, and low stress. I have broad range of event planning experience from a regional charity concert to an intimate gathering of family and friends and anything in between. No matter the size or style, each event requires the same amount of attention, dedication and love of people.
