Everyone Loves The Depot...

"My daughter is a professional photographer and Pere Marquette is one of her favorite venues to photograph weddings, seniors and proms. It was perfect for her bridal shower! The facility  was large enough to accommodate over 75 people comfortably and the décor is beautiful. Pere Marquette is definitely a hidden treasure in downtown Bay City!"
