AUBURN, Ind. (WFFT) - The Kruse Museums & Expo Center is being rebranded as Kruze Plaza.

Three local partners, John Kruse, Marlin Stutzman and Jason Bontrager bought the property in January.

"We want to take advantage of the growth in DeKalb County to meet more needs," Kruse said. "This includes a space for community members to host their milestone events right at home. There's no other venue like Kruse Plaza in Northeast Indiana."

Effectively, this space will be the largest and most flexible event venue in Northeast Indiana, boasting two rental spaces over 20,000 sq. ft., three outdoor event spaces and a multitude of smaller options.

Not only will Kruse Plaza become the premier event center in Northeast Indiana, but it will also house regionally and nationally recognized entities such as Worldwide Auctioneers, Praxis Detailing, Perpetual Industries, Reppert School of Auctioneering and the J. Kruse Education Center.

"We believe Kruse Plaza will contribute to the growth of northeast Indiana for decades to come," Stutzman said.

The renovations will be complete by late August. Bookings are open at www.kruseplaza.com.
