LeGrand Center is a collaborative effort between three local entities that include the Cleveland County Board of Commissioners, Cleveland County Schools and the Cleveland Community College Foundation Board. As economic development efforts in the area continued and continue to grow, the need for available space for those companies to have satellite offices, space for hiring events and corporate meetings continued to increase. After six years, the facility has grown to serve not only the initial targeted corporate market, but it has also played host to many other large events like the American Legion World Series Commanders Reception, the American Heart Association Heart Ball and various special events. The possibilities are endless at LeGrand. Let us help you Experience YOUR Extraordinary Event!
