History
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.

    Beautiful and Perfect

    Rustic, peaceful, absolutely amazing venue. If you are looking for a rustic/barn vibe for your wedding then this is the perfect place. Not to mention, the owners are some of the most helpful and kind people I have ever met. They are always looking for ways to improve. They had tons of decorations and props that we were allowed to use. They had a wonderful side room in their house for the bride and my girls to get ready so we weren’t sweating our makeup off outside before the wedding. Gorgeous picture opportunities. Would recommend 100 times over again!

    Wonderful day

    This venue was wonderful. Ceremony location was great and the reception barn was large enough to host everyone with plenty of space. Nice outdoor space as part of the reception barn. Beautiful location for pictures as well.

    The Old Homestead Event Barn's reply:

    Thank you, Joy, for your kind words, and you married a handsome Marine while surrounded by so many loved ones!! You were a beautiful bride in a perfect country setting!! Take Care!!
