The Charming Downtown Felton: Home to the first Satellite Workplace

Table of Contents

Our coworking space in historic downtown Felton has quite the past. This particular location holds a special place in the history of our company as the first-ever Satellite Workplace, opening its doors in 2009, before we even knew the term “coworking.” 

 

Built in 1893, the building is the 2nd oldest in the town and has seen many incarnations over the years. It started its life as the Alcazar Dance Hall in the early days of the town, moving through tire store, appliance store, grocery store, and, for about 40 years, various banks.

 

 

The building has grown. Our “quiet room” and breakroom were once a driveway leading to the Ice House, before people had electric refrigeration. When we modernized our event space, we uncovered beautiful hand-floated glass windows that no one knew existed. Above the dropped ceiling, we found a wooden sign proclaiming, “Roy’s Market. Meat 5 cents!”

 

 

The transformation of this space into a modern, coworking space still fills us with pride. When the power’s down in town, our generator allows people to work. When people in the outlying areas lose satellite dish internet for Zoom calls, they can come here for the fiber we were able to bring in.

 

 

This is why we do what we do: allowing people in small towns to connect with each other, while working virtually anywhere in the world! Satellite Workplaces is truly a labor of love.
