The Landmark Center is available for your public or private meetings, family gatherings, receptions, reunions and retreats. We were listed in the National Register of Historic Places in December of 2021. Our retreat center has five furnished bedrooms with space for 10 overnight guests. 

Our History Center has a collection of local Henning History artifacts. We ask you to share your family stories and area photos for inclusion in this archive. Photos may be scanned with originals being returned to you. 

Meeting spaces at the Landmark Center include newly installed “Smart Room” capabilities provided by Otter Tail County and The Blandin Foundation. This is one of 10 new Smart Rooms recently made available to the public throughout Otter Tail County. We also provide free WiFi service within the Landmark Center and outdoor surrounding garden areas.
