About The Historic Ellis Barn

The Ellis Barn represents a significant period of Michigan's agricultural and transportation history and provides unique educational opportunities. Constructed in 1884, the barn features a true gambrel roof.

This grand barn, previously located on Dixie Highway in Clarkston, was part of the 78-acre Ingomar Stock Farm owned by Norman J. Ellis. The Ellis Barn is the only Michigan barn referenced in the nationally renowned book, The American Barn. Ingomar Stock Farm was recognized by the Michigan Historical Commission as a Michigan Centennial Farm. This designation is given when land has been in the same family for 100 years or more. The barn was also named Barn of the Year in 2003 by the Michigan Barn Preservation Network.

At its dedication in 2005, Dorothy Ellis, granddaughter-in-law of Norman J. Ellis, who commissioned construction of the barn, recalled how six generations of the Ellis Family loved and valued the local landmark.

    Absolutely stunning barn!! Darlene and Gail were so wonderful and accommodating. I was calling around on a Friday afternoon looking for a place to take my engagement photos the next day (my original location fell through) They both called me back within minutes of leaving a message and arranged everything for me within an hour. Gail went out of her way to meet us at the barn and waiting almost 3 hours for us to finish. Great customer service! The barn was beautiful and thanks to they, my engagement photos turned out amazing!
