The Historic Ellis Barn is situated on Springfield Oaks County Park where the natural grounds surrounding the event space serve as a beautiful backdrop for your special day. The barn itself features a true gambrel roof and is a true local landmark. The Historic Ellis Barn is two stories tall which are joined by a stairwell on the interior.

The Historic Ellis Barn was originally constructed in 1884 and was part of a 78 acre Ingomar Stock Farm owned by Norman J. Ellis. This barn represents the significant period of MIchigan’s agricultural and transportation history. The Historic Ellis Barn has remained in the Ellis family since its construction and was recognized as a Michigan Centennial Farm.
The Historic Ellis Barn is happy to welcome in outside vendors of your choice. This allows for you to have complete control over the decor, food, flowers, photography, and much more. The wedding rental for this venue includes access to the site for a full weekend. This means you can begin setting up for your big day on Friday at noon and have until Sunday at noon to clean up. We also offer a limited number of tables and chairs for a small fee but you can still use an outside vendor if you prefer.

Ellis barn was a dream venue. You definitely have to be ready to put in a lot of work as it is a DIY venue, but it was worth every minute and dollar spent. The team was very responsive and helpful before, during, and after our wedding.Sent on 10/11/2019

The barn was perfect for what we wanted and it housed our huge families (even when they all had to stay inside because it poured rain)! Staff was excellent to work with - helped to make the day run extremely smoothly!! I would definitely recommend this venue to others!Sent on 06/20/2019
