Crowning an expansive hilltop in Hamilton, New York, Heritage Barn at the Dunham Homestead is a historic location available for a special wedding celebration. The ancestral home of the Dunham clan, the property has been maintained by generations of the family for over centuries. Couples can now add their own chapter to this storied site, and exchange vows in a venue that proposes luxury comfort in a rustic package.

Facilities and Capacity

A more recent addition, the Heritage Barn is a mid-century structure that evokes the property’s dairy farm origins. The building is a classic slice of Americana, constructed in the cathedral style with its characteristic gothic arch. This allows for a lofty interior that can welcome an extensive guest list of up to 300 loved ones. The ceiling soars to great heights, creating a sense of open space contrasted by the warm timber framing and lighting which evoke a welcoming intimacy. The tone is one of pastoral chic, backed by the depth of the Dunham Homestead’s rich heritage. Couples can also choose to exchange vows outdoors on the fecund grounds of the farm, with stunning views of the Chenango Valley as a backdrop. For those who wish to spend the night, Dunham Homestead proposes accommodation for up to 20 guests across two private buildings. The Farmhouse and Hophouse are distinct lodgings, with bucolic décor and modern amenities. Both are air-conditioned for the comfort of guests. The Heritage Barn offers couples extensive furniture rentals that are chosen to complement the venue’s aesthetic. These include tables, chairs, and an altar. There is parking available on-site, and the premises is wheelchair accessible.

Services Offered

The staff of Heritage Barn at the Dunham Homestead proposes a number of services for couples celebrating their vows. They can work with outside vendors, and are happy to coordinate with them to make sure the event runs smoothly. The management is comprised of seasoned wedding professionals and have hosted many events. They can help with the setup and cleanup of your wedding day.

Excellent customer service!

Heritage Barn was a pleasure to work with. The entire staff was helpful, professional, and timely. When we had to change the details of our event, and they helped us through the whole process and were there to answer questions along the way. I would highly recommend Heritage Barn for events. In addition, their venue is breath taking.

Wonderful wedding venue

The Heritage Barn is a beautiful venue! I have attended multiple weddings there. Each one has been spectacular! It is an absolutely beautiful farm with gorgeous views and surrounding property. The lightning of the ceiling and chandeliers are breathtaking. Share your special day with friends and family at the Heritage Barn!
