Made from the past. Made for the present. Made to be memorable.
Located in a landmark building that once housed poignant industry innovators of the 19th and 20th centuries, Tapestry Hall is poised to be an iconic Downtown Galt event space.
For more than one hundred years, these historic buildings have been integral to the fabric of Galt. Originally it was the location of the Dumfries Foundry, which moved to the site in 1847. Three years later, founding partner James Andrews left the business and fellow partner James Crombie took over, renaming the business James Crombie & Co.
In 1854, the Crimean War brought an industrial boom to Galt, promoting considerable growth for Crombie & Co.
By 1859, two enterprising Scottish employees, John Goldie and Hugh McCulloch, bought the company from Crombie, and the name was changed to The Goldie & McCulloch Co. Manufacturing grew to include steam engines and turbines, turbine water wheels, and even safe doors.
Goldie McCulloch thrived until 1923, when it merged with Babcock & Wilcox, continuing to manufacture industrial equipment before closing in 1987.
Today, as a premier venue in The Gaslight District, the original stone buildings of Tapestry Hall have been lovingly restored. The 19th century building has been meticulously revived to promote its industrial character and expansive proportions. The newly reimagined space boasts an inspiring urban atmosphere; a truly unique event space that inspires creativity and celebration and provides a remarkable backdrop for any occasion. Versatile for many uses, Tapestry Hall is perfect for weddings, corporate events, concerts, conferences, fundraisers, galas, photo shoots and more.
