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.

    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.
