The YWCA of Lubbock’s historic facility in the heart of Lubbock offers an ideal location for a great variety of events: ceremonies such as weddings and memorials; entertainment such as musical and theatrical productions, galas, quinceañeras, and receptions; business events such as meetings, seminars, conventions, and conferences; and private parties large and small.
The YWCA and The Legacy
The Legacy Event Center has a rich history. As the facility for the First Presbyterian Church from the time it was built until 2008, it hosted hundreds of events that played a central role in the ministry, culture, and vibrancy of Lubbock.
The YWCA purchased the building in May 2006 as the congregation made plans to move into a new facility in south Lubbock. In the summer of 2008, the YWCA began a significant project of restoring the building with two goals: first, to preserve the architectural and social character that reflects our city’s heritage and pioneer spirit; and second, to provide a beautiful setting for special events and a comfortable space for business meetings and training.
In the fall of 2009, the YWCA dedicated the sanctuary as Talkington Hall and the adjacent bridal area as Margaret’s Bridal Suite in honor of Margaret and J.T. Talkington, legendary supporters of the Lubbock community and the YWCA. As a 501 C-3 property of the YWCA of Lubbock, Legacy Event Center bookings essentially make a tangible difference for Lubbock’s children and families. So, book an event today and watch your dollars help others tomorrow!
