I had no idea how great this place is! All along I thought it was a barn style event venue. Little did I know, they are a museum of farming and rura America. On top of that, it’s a great venue for an ...event, or wedding! See More

A great visit! Fun to explore the history of farming on your own but the best way to see it is through Gary's eyes. We will be back!

Beautiful holiday displays and crafts in this unique venue. Returned to bring my granddaughter to see Santa for her first Christmas 🎄. Back where her mom and Dad were married just a couple years ago!

A wonderful place and a nice mixture of all the new. I would have to say the only downside if there is one is that there was only one bathroom for the men and one bathroom for the women and 1 bathroom... on the second or third floor it was I forget. 4 over 200 people at a venue that is not enough bathroom.

Our niece had her wedding here this weekend and it was by far the best wedding we've been to. Very well organized, the food was fantastic and the venue was just beautiful. Thank you for a lovely eveni...ng with family and friends! See More

This was the most beautiful place for a wedding. So many places for beautiful pictures. Roomy, and many of them!
Just didn't like the day after clean up, someone from the barns cleanup crew decided it... appropriate to toss all of our table linens out the back door! That was not class!
All in all we would recommend to anyone, just beware of your property...

Cool old timey stuff. Loved it. Really liked the reading room at the top of the silo. And the old farm equipment & cars. The theatre was really neat too. Had a great time. I'd do it again.
