Main Street Abbey

A place where history and future are present.


Main Street Abbey is located in the cozy, safe, small town of beautiful Columbia, IL. Built in 1866, The Abbey has been a staple of Historic Main Street for over 130 years and has since been renovated into one of the area’s premier event spaces. 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. Your guests are sure to be amazed by the striking arched ceilings and radiant, original stained glass windows. Complimented by a gorgeous courtyard, the Abbey is a perfect all inclusive venue for your wedding ceremony/reception, business meeting, conference, or holiday party.
