City of Clinton Announces New Event Venue

Rising from the restoration and renovation of an ancient cotton warehouse near the railroad tracks, at 305 West Main Street in Clinton, the Cotton Loft will be a an event venue, a wedding chapel and a site of weddings receptions. The City of Clinton and the owner Star Chappell unveiled the new venue on Thursday.

Ms. Chappell has operated the Cabana Cafe in Newberry since 1996. She has been in the hospitality business for 40 years.

Geographically, she said, Clinton is “the perfect location and a mecca of old buildings waiting to be restored. It takes heart, vision and passion. I want to keep as much of the building’s history and style intact as possible.” Ms. Chappell expects to have the Grand Opening in March 2019.
