The Earle Brown Heritage Center is a historic barn for couples choosing to have their wedding in the greater Minneapolis, Minnesota region. At this vintage country venue, couples will find outdoor spaces with pristine landscaping and a traditional red event barn for their wedding. This venue is located 20 minutes from the Stone Arch Bridge in downtown Minneapolis.

Facilities and Capacity
Couples can invite up to 800 guests to their wedding at the Earle Brown Heritage Center. The crown jewel of this venue is the red event barn on this property. Couples can have their ceremony with its country structure in the background. The inside of the barn is contemporary, with carpeted flooring and LED halos of light hanging from the gently arched ceiling. The ceiling is crafted of exposed wood, ductwork and metal beams. The barn consists of one main room and, to one side, a pre-function area perfect for a cocktail reception. Couples can welcome their guests through the circular room just off the main banquet hall of the barn. This circular room features floor-to-ceiling windows all the way around for 360-degree views. Though the interior of the barn is relatively modern, there are still large sliding barn doors at one end of the event hall for that authentic country feeling. Outside, couples will find a majestic fountain and plenty of natural landscaping for optional ceremony locations or for photographs.

Services Offered
Couples can host a ceremony, reception, or rehearsal dinner at the Earle Brown Heritage Center. The venue offers all-inclusive packages that cover all the details so that couples don’t have to stress about their wedding day.

    Venue tour

    Our tour of Earle Brown was very nice, the facility was beautiful and Tami was very nice. The grounds are very picturesque and there is a lot of space for young wedding guests to run around. We loved the fact that all of the wedding halls had access to an outdoor patio.

    Best Day Ever

    I am so glad that my husband and I decided to choose Earle Browne for our wedding venue. They were very responsive from the beginning to the end. Tami was great at answering all of my questions and Samantha helped me in ensuring the day went off without a hitch. My guests raved about the menu, the space, the garden that we had access to since the wedding was in the summer.
    They were well organized and accommodating. I used my own vendors for the decoration and they accommodated some of my cultural demands. I would definitely recommend Earle Browne because the location is perfect, there is a hotel connecting to the venue, the pricing is affordable and the team is great to work with so you do not have any worries throughout the planning stages or the day of the event.
