The lower hall, has a restored stage, a new sound and lighting system and warm ambient light spilling in through hammered glass windows.The Hall is equipped with a commercial kitchen, elevator, six bathrooms and lobby spaces.

Befitting the designation of Wellfleet as "the art gallery town," art infuses the building inside and out. In addition to the doors, a sculpted heron made out of weathered steel by Truro artist Del Filardi now crowns the restored cupola. A fully accessible reception lobby includes a stunning hand tiled installation and warm wood finishes and subtle paint colors add character and charm to this historic building. French doors lead out to the lovely gardens — a perfect setting for all outdoor parties.

"Wellfleet Preservation Hall proved to be the perfect location for our wedding. This beautifully restored/updated former church on Main Street offers a fantastic setting for an event such as ours. We chose to have our ceremony in the upstairs space, follwoed by the reception downstairs, and into the lush backyard. The Hall functioned and flowed fantatically; allowing guests to interact freely in this pristine setting. Preservation hall has more than enough to work with and accommodate the needs of just about any event, and we'd certainly recommend it for a wedding."
