About This Location


Our 4,000 square-foot Great Hall and breezy screened-in porch—all surrounded by a rolling meadow—provide the ideal setting for a memorable wedding. This unique venue, built in the 1930’s by the Civilian Conservation Corps, is on the national register of historic places and is a gorgeous example of a wormy chestnut and sandstone structure. The Great Hall can host up to 200 guests for a seated dinner.
