History

A dream... that's where we start. After a mission trip to Nicaragua the dream was born. It was a dream to open an event center. The Historic Bank, located at 100 South Third Street in downtown Hamilton, Ohio, was the perfect place to launch a unique event center. After falling in love with the details of the history, architecture, and location a vision began to form. This vision encompassed keeping the vaulted ceilings and exquisite details of the old bank while adding bathrooms, opening up the spaces, and renovating flooring. Construction began in late 2018 with the hope to launch its first events in spring of 2019. As the space was being renovated, it was time to decide on a name that would fit the mission behind the dream. The dream was to launch a space that could be a blessing to the community, merging a great space with a focus on exceptional customer service.


As the dreamers prayed over their decision the word Benison resonated within the vision. They learned that "Benison" is derived from the Latin word benedictio which means to bless. The word Benison has been traced back to the 14th century as a spoken blessing. This space was to be a blessing and to be called The Benison. Whatever your reason for gathering at The Benison; a celebration, business function, or charity event we declare a blessing over your event.


So, in knowing who we are and where we came from you can be assured that we will surpass your expectations merging the right space with your dreams.
