The Barn


The Barn is located on the picturesque grounds of Blackberry Farm, a 54-year-old living history museum staged in the era of pioneer life. Photo ops are abound in the naturally stunning backdrop of Blackberry Farm and its attractions such as the replica steam engine train, wagon, carousel, and covered bridge. Our space is perfect for small and large weddings with guests of all ages. Weddings at The Barn are one-of-a-kind!


The Barn is beautifully appointed, featuring rustic charm amidst country elegance. Although The Barn is located in the second largest city in Illinois, our venue transports you from the hustle and bustle of urban life to the calm peaceful grounds of Blackberry Farm. The Barn is surrounded by meticulously maintained grounds and views of Lake Gregory.


Wedding parties and guests are free to embrace the playfulness in life by incorporating Blackberry Farm’s ride attractions into your memorable day. The train, carousel and wagon can be added to your cocktail hour, providing pure enjoyment for you and your loved ones. Once married, couples enjoy a private moment together and take the first train ride to The Barn for the start of a reception to remember!
