We have had many weddings here for people who would like a somewhat rustic - even historical - setting. The barn seats 200 people comfortably, and the 8 acre property alongside the Scantic River offers many spaces for outdoor ceremonies and photos, allowing you to make your wedding day truly unique. We are conveniently located close to I-91, about 8 miles from Springfield, MA, and 17 miles from Hartford CT.
Built in 1845, the historic Powder Mill Barn in Hazardville (Enfield) CT, was the horse barn of the Hazard Powder Company, which supplied 40% of all the gunpowder used during the Civil War. Converted by Ralph Sweet for Square Dancing in 1959, the rental hall is now owned by his daughter Polly and is available to rent for weddings and special events; as well as welcoming visitors to its regularly scheduled activities.

Wedding Ceremony and Reception
We had our wedding at Powder Mill Barn in October of 2019 and it was perfect. We loved that the barn wasnt cookie cutter, and we were able to decorate and design the seating and decorations how we wanted. Both the ceremony and reception were held inside of the barn although there is property in the back to have an out door ceremony. There is plenty of parking and easy access for your dj/food vendor. We loved that the barn is located conveniently near the highway and hotels, as well as various restaurants which made the weekend much easier for our out of town guests. If you are looking for a rustic wedding, this facility was perfect for us and hope that you consider making your lifetime memories there as well!Sent on 02/19/2020

A gorgeous venue for a wedding
I attended my friend's wedding. I had never been there before. How gorgeous it is inside! I loved the rustic scenery with the fairy lights. My friend and his bride recited their vows and after we all celebrated. What a beautiful experience for them. Everything inside and out was perfect. I totally reccomend a wedding here.Sent on 02/20/2020
