Mess Hall

Fort Thomas Mess Hall

The Mess Hall was the 26th building in the Fort. The building fell into disrepair in the 1960’s but was utilized by residents in the 1970’s when they would flood it in the winter and turn it into an ice rink. The city took ownership of the Mess Hall and was honored the Ida Lee Willis Memorial award for preservation in 1993. The Mess Hall today, hosts events of all kinds. The Mess Hall can be rented out for meetings, weddings, family reunions, birthday parties, celebrations of life, and baby showers. In recent years the Mess Hall has welcomed the Fort Thomas Farmer’s Market every Wednesday May to October.
