About Us

Noted architect William Waters built The Waters in 1903 as the Oshkosh Yacht Club. The Georgian Revival building was regarded as the finest clubhouse in the Midwest. Decades later, members of American Legion Post 70 bought The Waters and used it as a clubhouse for more than 60 years.

In 2008, restorations returned The Waters to its original Georgian Revival architecture. Though it’s now a year-round special events venue, the Oshkosh Yacht Club still calls The Waters home.

Today, The Waters is a private event facility mainly used for weddings, business events and special celebrations. The waterfront venue can accommodate up to 300 guests throughout the building. Many updated historic features, ample parking, tenured staff and an amazing view make The Waters a special place to celebrate.
