With a rich history since 1887, The Old Homestead Event Barn began as a traditional farm used to house horses and milk cows, and for corn crib storage and other farm machinery. Eventually, it was decided that the barn would serve a much greater purpose, providing a flexible event space filled with rich history created by the original owners. The barn underwent a restoration project in which much of the old surfaces were repurposed with newer, more durable wood. Since 2013, The Old Homestead Event Barn has been the home for many weddings.
