Ideal for couples who wish to wed in a rural setting, The Heritage Barn, LLC is a rustic wedding venue located in Oliveburg, Pennsylvania (Jefferson County) which is near Punxsutawney, home of the famous groundhog. The name was inspired by the fact that the farm has been in the family for several generations.
The 1882 inscription on one of the foundation stones attests to the year this gem was masterfully built with its hand-hewn beams and posts. Now fully restored the barn is still the crown jewel amid the grassy fields. From the indoor plumbing, with stalls built from reclaimed tongue and groove of the former granary to the custom-designed bar also built with salvaged barn boards, no detail has been overlooked. The hay loft has been re-fashioned to allow bird's eye view seating or can be a great perch for the DJ. Rustic chandeliers, twinkle lights, and numerous antiques, original to the farm, are tastefully displayed throughout. All the decor has been carefully planned so that you can easily coordinate your decorating to enhance the beauty that is already there.
The seating capacity allows for 200 guests. Both the covered deck and back porch provide outdoor seating and the barn itself is well-ventilated for everyone's maximum comfort. As a bonus, there is an extra patio seating area for guests to relax as they converse and wait for a chance to play some cornhole. A pergola with swings, a fire pit, and a s'more bar round out the amenities everyone can enjoy.
If you choose to marry on the premises, there is a bridal suite and groom's changing shed for getting ready. Two ceremony site options are available. Both have a simplistic arbor that you are free to enhance with florals and greenery. The hilltop site is extra special with its views of the rolling hills and fields and can be accessed with a pleasant ride to the top via a hay wagon. Also, the barn's lower level can be used for your ceremony if the weather is inclement.
The staff at the Heritage Barn provides event planning services in order to ensure that your wedding runs smoothly. They can assist you with set up and breakdown, provide bar services, and suggest local vendors for all your needs from catering to overnight accommodations. They promise that you will be proud to hold your wedding and reception at their countryside location, and your guests will appreciate the beautiful surroundings as they help celebrate the joining of your two hearts.
