History

Ray Vernon Estate was founded by Harry and Bessie Hassinger, who purchased the land in 1939. Spanning 600 acres, they farmed the land with their children, Ray and Glenn. The family’s camp, called the Hassingers’ Shady Rest, was built in 1949 and still stands in the area today. As Ray and Glenn grew into adults, they became employed, got married, and purchased the farm from their parents. The current owners originally had four acres of the farm, and in 2015 they had the opportunity to add several more acres. As a way to honor their legacy, the property is named after the Hassinger’s father, Ray and his brother (Glenn) Vernon.

    My wedding

    We had our wedding this weekend November 13,2021. This venue is absolutely beautiful. We were planning to have our wedding outside but due to weather we had to move it inside. However, they offer both to have the ceremony indoor or outdoor and it was just as beautiful. Tom and Melody Hassinger are the owners and they were both super helpful and answered any questions we had. Anyone looking for a Rustic wedding this is the Perfect place to go❤️

    Ray Vernon Estate's reply:

    Breonna you and your family were amazing. Although the weather was a little crazy, your wedding was gorgeous and that precious little guy could not have been any more adorable in his car. Much love and happiness! You two are perfect for one another ❤️

    Excellent!

    The owners of Ray Vernon Estate are absolutely amazing to work with! I had to change my venue a month before the wedding and they went out of their way to make sure everything went smoothly for me. My wedding day could not have been more perfect! All of our guests loved the venue and complimented it all night.
