The 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 a significant period of Michigan’s agricultural and transportation history. The Ellis Barn has remained in the Ellis family since its construction and was recognized as a Michigan Centennial Farm.
The Ellis Barn is happy to welcome outside vendors of your choice. This allows 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.
