The Barn was built in 1935 and operated as one of the largest Dairy Farms in the state. After operations ceased, it changed hands a few times and was used for a variety of things including a pumpkin patch.
After sitting empty for several years, the barn was purchased by a local businessman in 2015. Renovations quickly began after all of the plans were in place to bring the building up to code and operate as a licensed business. Partial renovations were complete in 2016, and The Barn was hosting events in Phase I, the Milking Parlor while Phase II was being finished. The renovations were completed in late spring of 2017, and The Barn opened up availability to the Whole Property for event rental. This Barn is one of a kind in our area, and located on the border of Northwest Omaha in the very popular and expanding community of Bennington, NE.

Dee was amazing during our tour. She gave us the history of the barn and showed us around and went into details with all the options we are offered by choosing the barn as our venue. We really appreciated her taking the time to get to know us and listening to what we want for our big day!Sent on 05/21/2020

Fabulous Venue and Staff
My daughter just had her wedding at The Barn and it was the most perfect venue! It was large enough to hold a large crowd and yet felt intimate and special. So many large venues feel like a commercial auditorium but The Barn certainly did not! The wedding was stunning and one main reason was our venue...The Barn...HIGHLY RECOMMEND;)Sent on 08/27/2019

We had our reception at the Ackerhurst Dairy Barn and it was a great experience! The older couple that rents it out were so sweet and informative. We were able to go up there several times to show family members the space or to measure things out. We also got the keys on the Wednesday before to start decorating. Everyone kept coming up to us saying how much they loved how unique our reception was. I highly recommend them!Sent on 02/15/2012

The space has been sold, brought up to code per city planning board requirements and completely renovated for use as a licensed business. For current contact information please call 402-25-3139.
