The Treasury is open and available for in-person tours, weddings, and events!

Our commitment to the health and well-being of all those who walk through our doors continues to be top of mind 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

All staff and vendors are required to wear masks during events, and during any other customer interactions, which include meetings and tours.

Before our venue opens each day we disinfect the venue with a fogger machine.  The fog is used to reduce the number of airborne microorganisms while it applies disinfectant to all surfaces immediately.

We are proud to announce that we have invested in and installed the Air Scrubber by Aerus into our Air Conditioning’s Ventilation Systems.  This system combines high-intensity UVC lighting with a state-of-the-art process that destroys over 99% of airborne and surface contaminants. This is the same technology that was built for NASA and is used on the International Space Station.

The Treasury is following customized guidelines created by Automated Clinical Guidelines to sanitize high-traffic areas every 45 minutes during events.

Sanitizing stations have been installed throughout the building.

Watch the video below to learn more about the steps that we are taking to ensure the health and safety of all of our couples and guests!
