The Starline Factory is located in Harvard, IL 15 minutes south of the Wisconsin border.

The "Starline", as the locals call, us is a mecca for weddings, events, art, food, and history. The building was in ruins in the 1990's when the vision was cast to renovate this building into what it has become today. Words fail  to describe the grandeur of the building as you walk into 300 W. Front Street.

We provide a full service venue for weddings and events with multiple rooms and large guest capacities. We are an ideal setting for many occasions. Head over to the events page to see what dates we have open and the different rooms that we offer.

"If the walls could talk," is one of the phrases that you will hear often around the building. There is something that is energizing about this place. Come and read the history and see the transformation into what it was as a factory to the building it is today. Head over to the Story of Starline page to read more about this building.
