A beautiful and historic 19th century farmhouse and barn situated on 15 picturesque acres is a favorite with area residents for weddings, receptions, meetings, luncheons, small conferences, retreats, reunions and other social affairs.
The House, Banquet Room and Patio
The Polen Farm house includes a roomy living room, dining room, sun porch, and banquet room. A seasonal tent covers a large patio providing the flexibility of an indoor or outdoor event. These features make the Polen Farm House the perfect place for a small, intimate gathering or a slightly larger event, of up to 130 people.
Unequaled in the community is the Polen Farm Barn. Through renovation, the barn has become an ideal setting for wedding receptions, graduation parties, family reunions, company picnics and other corporate events. The lower level, which features a small service kitchen, will accommodate up to 125 people and is usable year-round. The upper level is roomy enough for as many as 175 people.
The Grounds and Gazebo
The grounds around the farmhouse and barn have been preserved to a large extent in their natural condition. Highlights include a formal garden patio and a Gazebo perfect for outdoor weddings and small musicals. When the facility or grounds are not reserved for a private renter, Polen Farm’s picnic areas are available for public use as well.
A brick path leads from the patio outside the Banquet Room to the Gazebo, a lovely structure so popular for outdoor weddings that it was selected for use in the Polen Farm logo. The white iron benches that face the Gazebo provide seating for 150. The use of the Gazebo is included in all rental prices or can be rented separately for wedding ceremonies.
