About The Barn at Stratford

The Barn at Stratford is owned by the Delaware County Historical Society. Our professional event staff are organized, intuitive, and experienced. We customize each event for your budget, style, tradition and vision. Our venue offers you the unique experience of holding your wedding and/or reception in an authentic 1840s barn. Step back in time as your senses take in six acres of one of the earliest pioneer homesteads in Delaware County.
When you plan a wedding in The Barn at Stratford, there is something so uniquely romantic and timeless about beginning your own history on property so significant and carefully preserved. Our barn was not only a functional barn that once held 75 Belgian and Percheron horses but is the original iconic stone end barn the Stratford village is known for. Since 1848, The Barn at Stratford has been pivotal in the community. It has represented business, innovation and now tells the tale of progress and history over the last 170+ years.
Every photograph, smile, footstep & memory made here in our barn lives on as part of a legacy in the central Ohio history by supporting historical preservation and education.

    Wonderful Wedding Venue

    We held our wedding at The Barn at Stratford in September 2019. We feel in love with the venue and rustic nature of the barn. It was nice to have the bridal suite in the Meeker House next door and to have to opportunity to have the Museum open during our cocktail hour. We also have so many AMAZING photos form all the outdoor and indoor backdrops.

    Beautiful setting

    The Barn at Stratford was the perfect setting for my daughters wedding. The venue manager Melissa was on point with her knowledge and communication. She was quick to get back with me with any questions or concerns I had. My daughter and now son in law loved this place from the first time they saw it...needless to say, it didn’t take them long to decide this would be where their wedding/reception would be held. We would definitely recommend this venue to anyone looking for a beautiful setting and wonderful staff to work with.

    We are so happy for your family and the MANY blessings you have to celebrate this year.
