Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Turn-of-the-century charm abounds in this versatile Rockford destination, which focuses on American life in the early 1900s and houses historical structures such as a blacksmith’s shop, a schoolhouse, a fire station, a church, and a barbershop.
  • Exchange vows in the Moonlight Garden, designed to be enjoyed especially as the sun sets. Many of the blooms planted here were selected for the romantic sentiments of the Victorian language of flowers that they represent.
  • Spacious and rustic, the 1905 Barn features open beams and a gleaming wood floor for dining and dancing. The grassy areas surrounding the barn are perfect for lawn games during the reception, and can be set up to accommodate your ceremony as well.
