The 1804 barn at the Powder Major’s farm is a classic example of an authentic Yankee timber frame. The recently restored 80x40 foot structure maintains all its original charm with reclaimed timber and barn boards, antique patina and hand hewn post and beams.
The setting provides a perfect backdrop for your ceremony or special event. A patio behind the main barn, which is circled with antique granite foundation stones, is also available for the ceremony and provides stunning views of the farm and a front row seat to breathtaking sunsets.
Quiet and secluded, the setting includes scenic farm vistas, open fields, forest, a farm pond as well as stonewalls and historic architecture (i.e. 1723 farmhouse and 1804 barn). The surrounding 260 acres of Powder Major’s forest land has recently been conserved and easements have been placed on the fields to ensure that the property will forever remain a farm and nature preserve. Guests are free to stroll the grounds, check out the farm pond and forest and visit historic sites on the property.
There is also an adjoining timber frame structure that can be used for a ceremony in the event of rain. It also houses restrooms and a kitchen space for caterers.
