  • Authenticity: There are myriad wedding barns out there. Whippoorwill Hill is not your average wedding barn. This stunning event venue was originally built in 1892 and completely disassembled, re-erected, and reimagined in 2016. This 130+ year old event venue is the perfect balance of historic charm and modern convenience. You will not find another barn that is more architecturally unique or that parties better than the Whippoorwill Hill Event Barn.
