Dan, a contractor, built the "party barn" in 2000, to store and repair equipment. But his family saw its potential as a picnic pavilion, skating rink and barn dance venue. Dan converted the space to an auction house for cattle. But, the community continued to request to use it for wedding receptions or family reunions.
The barn doors open onto a lake, just 150 feet away. The setting, in the midst of rolling hills, features a flat, manicured lawn. The barn opens to a vaulted ceiling with custom wash-bin lighting, and sliding doors to keep the weather out and the fun in. With 8,600 square feet, it is perfect for events and has plenty of dance floor space. Many weddings inside the barn take advantage of the two sides using one for the ceremony and the other for the reception.
