Phyllis Wheatley Heritage Center

Event Facilities


The Phyllis Wheatley Heritage Center is conveniently located just minutes away from the heart of Midtown in the up-and-coming Locust Business District, and blocks from the new St. Louis CITY SC stadium, Union Station and the Gateway Arch. The Phyllis Wheatley branch of the YWCA was formed in 1911 to serve African-American women and girls. Our facility on Locust is listed on the National Register of Historic Places in the City of St. Louis. We are thrilled to share more about our unique cultural significance in our city and the nation with our community. We have just completed an extensive renovation of the Heritage Center, and are proud to offer a stunning location where you can celebrate significant and momentous occasions. Our mission is to offer everything you need to create a beautiful environment and an event to remember. From legacy events, fundraiser galas, weddings, concerts and receptions, to community engagements, we offer the canvas on which your vision will come to life. The hallmark of our venue is a strong sense of place, and our hospitality team will expertly guide you and help you create your unforgettable event.
