Grelen's Newest Premier Property


The Market at Grelen is thrilled to announce the opening of its newest venture, The Grelen Depot.  With historic preservation, art and beauty in mind, this versatile property was thoughtfully renovated and designed by Grelen Co-Owner, Leslie Gregg. Her objective was to enhance the charm and character of the lovely Main Street by creatively restoring this classic old-world structure situated in the historic town of Orange, Virginia. The ultimate vision was to glamorize the exterior while creating a variety of small elegant indoor venue spaces that compliment The Market at Grelen.  The end result is a contemporary building that exudes warmth and a bit of European flair.  


The Grelen Depot boasts high ceilings, ample natural light, an art gallery, bar and lounge areas as well as a loft space with a range of seating options. Each space has its own distinct personality and all can be used for a variety of events including weddings, rehearsal dinners, holiday parties, workshops, corporate retreats, and more. To create the ideal guest experience, there are three distinct event spaces - The Gallery, The Lounge, and The Loft. The Gallery and Lounge complement each other perfectly for hosting wedding ceremonies and receptions, while also functioning as an Art Gallery that opens periodically for art exhibitions.  The Loft has a different vibe featuring whimsical neon signs and a retro lounge area that simply calls out for live music and fun!
