We have used the 1912 Barn for our 25th wedding renewal. Aissa and Hank was so helpful. They even had things there you can use to decorate with. The Barn was perfect for what we wanted, the country look. We have used the 1912 Barn for more than one event and would highly recommend it.

Amazing Venue and Owners!! - An Eventective User from Decatur

BEAUTIFUL rustic venue that can host small or large events perfectly. The owners are very hands on to ensure nothing is left undone. Whether you are looking for a place to say I do or just tea with girlfriends this place is the perfect setting! You can also stay here in one of their B&B rooms! I can't recommend them enough!

Wow! Where Do I start! - An Eventective User from Clearwater, FL

This place was outstanding. We had our beautiful September wedding here last summer and we could not have been at a better location. Staff was wonderful and met our every need. So many beautiful settings for photos and options on this property. If you don't book here you are missing out. Take it from a Very Happy Bride!
