The C.C. brand center is a fantastic place and over looked by so many people. It is a great spot to bring friends and guests from out of town. It truly is a heritage site to be proud of

I've had a few experiences here. a few corporate 'offsite' events and a birthday party for friends. The facilities are pretty decent - a good size room with breathtaking views of the Detroit River through the full glass on the river side of the room....More

We had such a great tour of the old Hiram Walker house. He was a very interesting man and so inovative. It's too bad the tours and tastings are no longer available. What a wonderful part of our history to lose...

We stopped by the brand center, and we were told by the guard that the center is now venue for wedding. The edifice is outstanding from the outside. Sad that the interior is closed to the general public.

Loved doing this tour and learning all about the history of it. Great job and well priced. The tour guide was very informative and actuslly pretty witty. This was not a full tour.

Unfortunately a few months ago they stopped the tours and closed the building. Locals are holding out hope that someone comes through and saves this beautiful building and piece of history.

Unfortunately they ended their tours the end of April. We are holding out hope that they find a way to reopen for tours. It will be a shame if they do not reopen. It is a beautiful facility full of history!
