About Wilson's Bittersweet Barn

Wilson’s Bittersweet Barn is a rustic wedding barn for couples getting married in the greater Lancaster, Pennsylvania area. This barn, built in 1817, is older than the Civil War, but still maintains all of its original country charm and authenticity for a couple’s wedding day. This brick structure and its surrounding property in New Oxford, Pennsylvania welcome couples from all around for a historic and down-to-earth wedding.

Facilities and Capacity

This well-maintained historical site welcomes between 200 and 220 guests to a wedding within its walls. Wilson’s Bittersweet Barn is a majestic brick structure, surrounded by green grasses and open blue skies. Couples can marry outdoors on the property or in the barn itself. Inside, the barn is made entirely of wood, with windows to let in light and decor of a couple’s choosing. The rough natural texture of the wood adds to the barn’s authenticity and the rustic romance of the wedding day. Fairy lights overhead and twisted around the beams illuminate the room after sunset with a twinkle.

Services Offered

Couples can host their ceremony and reception at this wedding venue. Wilson’s Bittersweet Barn also welcomes guests for bridal showers, engagement parties, or rehearsal dinners. Couples will have access to a bridal suite on their wedding day, where they can prepare privately for the day’s events, alone or with members of the wedding party. Event planning prior to the wedding day, with the help of knowledgeable staff, helps the celebration go off without a hitch. The venue also offers event rentals and other items, such as chairs, decor, lighting, and tables. Guests will find onsite parking at this venue to make transportation more convenient.

History

Built in 1817, this barn was likely used as a staging area prior to the battle of Gettysburg, given its proximity to the town. The structural integrity, and original rustic interior of this barn have been maintained through careful preservation for over 200 years. Just like the marriages that take place in and around it, this structure was built to stand the test of time.
