The Barn at Historic Penn Farm is a charming place to host your special event.

Whether its a wedding, a corporate event, or a family reunion, the Barn at Historic Penn Farm offers a beautiful rustic atmosphere for your special event. This rustic barn looks out over 100+ acres of productive farmland. It is particularly beautiful in late summer or early fall when surrounding sunflowers are in bloom.

The bank barn is built into the side of a hill and has an upper and lower floor. The main entrance is through a magnificent large doorway opening to a beautiful high-ceilinged main event room. The lower floor retains its very rustic look with a more intimate atmosphere. The back patio boasts a large concrete milk trough, perfect for iced beverages.


Historic Penn Farm is perfectly suited your rustic wedding. The small meadow behind the barn provides a wonderful backdrop for outdoor ceremonies. The upper floor of the barn is wide open for indoor ceremonies and receptions. It holds 150 seated guests or 240 for a standing event. The back patio provides a nice spot for cocktail hour.
