Built initially as the Windmill Dinner Theater, this historic building originally hosted performances by local actors and actresses while guests enjoyed an evening meal. Back in the '60s, the Windmill Dinner Theater was also graced by performances from Wayne Newton, Charley Pride, and Willie Nelson. The Windmill Dinner Theater venue was long gone as we searched for a reception venue. The building was still intact, topped by a graceful mansard roof (also known as a curb roof or French roof). We wanted to stay true to the building's design legacy and maintain an appropriate name. Since French rooftops are often found on a chateau, and a chateau is a large French country house or a stately residence imitating a French castle, the description "chateau" just had to be in the name. Additionally, we are located on Forest Park Boulevard, so the name Chateau at Forest Park was a natural choice.
