About Tobacco Ranch Event Venue

Tobacco Ranch Event Venue is a rustic barn and farm wedding venue located in Clare, Michigan. It is a historic ranch that is perched on a sprawling 80-acre property bordering Michigans’ well-known Tobacco River. Towering cedar trees, flowing creeks, and a serene pond make for a beautiful backdrop to any special occasion. The venue is situated less than a mile away from the downtown Clare area as well as the historic Doherty Hotel. The Tobacco Ranch Event Venue’s combination of modern renovations and abundance of original structures welcome guests into a timeless setting, idyllic for wedding celebrations.

Throughout the wooded glens and tranquil hideaways, one can find a perfect spot to exchange vows and hold a memorable ceremony gathering. With a plethora of top-quality facilities available, the soon-to-be-weds are sure to feel spoilt for choice when finding a space to make their own. Two lovingly-renovated barns offer special locations to host a rehearsal dinner or wedding reception. For the convenience of caterers, a kitchen prep room is readily available and offers a simple solution to the planning party. To help couples and their entourage feel relaxed, get-ready rooms are provided and offer a sense of privacy while preparing for all of the festivities. Some of the additional facilities available include but are not limited to:

  • Large ceremonial lawn
  • Gathering fire pit

This includes the likes of audiovisual equipment, various decor items, and furniture such as tables and chairs. An onsite event planner is happy to assist couples in designing and executing their wedding.

History

The ranch was first built in the 1930s by Isaiah Leebove. Isaiah was an attorney with ties to the infamous Purple Gang, who settled in Clare, Michigan while fleeing the law in New York. He built his lavish and spacious, stone-pillared home with the intention of impressing a slew of high-profile house guests, including multiple mobsters and oil barons. Leebove was eventually gunned down in the taproom of the Doherty Hotel by business partner and fellow Purple Gang associate, Carl “Jack” Livingston, in 1938. The property sat vacant for several decades following Isaiah‘s murder until Leo and Glenna Beard purchased the land in 1980. The Beards spent three years renovating the ranch in order to make it inhabitable once again.
