Built over 100 years ago, this beautiful structure has played many roles. In its earlier days, the Mader barn provided winter shelter for farm animals and their feed. As farming changed it became storage for a myriad of various farm equipment during the winter months. In more recent years, the Mader barn has been the backdrop for a variety of fundraisers for several charitable organizations in the Lewis-Clark Valley. It was at one of these fund raisers that a little girl told her mother she wanted to get married, “here at this farm and this barn.” In August 2013, that young lady’s dream came true. Since then other couples have exchanged vows in this quiet, country setting. Though the barn still houses farm equipment in the winter, we have worked to improve the facility to make it more wedding friendly. The Mader barn’s spacious 3,500 square foot inside includes decorative lighting beside old-fashion style vinyl windows and several wagon wheel light fixtures in the barn’s apex. Work has also been done to highlight the beauty of the building’s original beams and wood walls while making it accommodating for a modern wedding. The barn can host approximately 250 guests and the outdoor area 400 plus. Updated outlets and circuits ensure all your electrical needs are met.
