The Wurlitzer Building
The Wurlitzer Building serves as the gateway to Niagara County. The building’s grand tower is a beacon of the past, present, and future, and it marks the building as a familiar and beloved landmark. The sprawling complex began as the North Tonawanda Barrel Organ Factory. The Wurlitzer Company purchased it in 1908 and put it on the map as a producer of world-class theater organs and employing over 3,000 people.
Today, with this rich historical background, The Wurlitzer Building is home to retail and office spaces, including Platter’s Chocolate Factory and Wurlitzer Events. The building is a unique offering with a rich historic past as a beloved landmark in the Western New York community. It is believed to be the first true industrial reuse events facility in Niagara County.
Repurposed industrial buildings provide one-of-a-kind settings for trendy, eclectic weddings and events.
