Open house dates and times are for current and potential renters who would like to see the barn in person:

Saturday, April 22nd 9:30a-11:30a

You do not need to sign-up or register for the open houses. 

There is no heat in the barn so please dress warmly and wear boots if you’d like to walk the grounds. The restroom building by the Old Barn has been winterized and will not be open for use during the Open House. 

The open houses are the perfect time to come see the barn, take measurements, and pick up a floor plan that you can use for your planning. Staff will be available on-site at this time.  However, due to the number of people that typically attend open houses,  renters are encouraged to contact Kellie Adkins, Outdoor Recreation Coordinator either before or after the open house with any questions you may have so she can personally assist you.  Kellie can be reached

Barn Rental

This magnificent old building sits majestically along Dupont Road on a small working farm operated by the Parks and Recreation Department. The peaceful, bucolic setting includes a pond, wetlands, livestock pens, vegetable gardens, prairie grasses and crop fields. The barn, originally built in the late 1800’s, housed livestock and stored farm equipment and served the farm for over 100 years.

The barn has been restored to capture the rustic look of the historical structure. The old barn features a large seating area and tables for up to 170 guests and a separate room for the catering operation. A separate but adjacent building houses the restrooms. The Old Barn may be reserved from May-October. Rental fees begin as low as $335 for 6 hours Monday-Thursday only or $620 for 8 hours, with additional times being available for a per hour fee.
