Originally Consolidated Barbed Wire Company in the 1880s, the building housed over 300 fishermen. After the fishing rush passed, the building changed hands quite a few times, acting as a paper mill, then a storage building, and eventually was abandoned in 1980s. The restoration of the building took 10 years and has remained on the state historical register since the 1990s restoration.The venue receives its name from Abe Burns and Jake Washington, who were known for their record catfish catches.

    Venue Review

    Abe & Jake’s is the perfect place for a wedding ceremony and reception! We had both at the venue and our guests raved about how it was unique and absolutely gorgeous! On top of that you work with the best coordinator, Kiley, and she makes sure your day is absolutely perfect. I cannot say thank you to her and the staff enough for everything they did! I would absolutely recommend Abe & Jake’s to any bride and groom out there planning! It was by far one of the best and easiest decisions we made for our big day!!

    AMAZING Experience! Would recommend to anyone!

    I had my ceremony and reception here and everything was amazing! The space is so beautiful that you don’t need to bring in many decorations. Above all, the hospitality is what made Abe and Jake’s the best. Kiley was amazing to work with! She is so kind and so invested in every one of her brides. By the end of the process, I thought of her more as a friend than a coordinator. She has even checked up on me after the wedding to make sure everything went well and to see how I was doing with married life. It was more than just a “congratulations,” she is truly invested in her brides (and grooms). I looked at a few other venues in Lawrence, but the customer service here solidified my decision. I would recommend Abe and Jake’s to anyone who is getting married in Lawrence!

    I'm always excited when I get booked for an event at Abe & Jake's Landing. The staff, especially Rosie, is especially nice and professional and always a pleasure to work with. The natural lighting & beautiful architecture of Abe & Jake's is gorgeous for wedding photography. This is a great venue for large non-profit events, weddings, and corporate parties.
