Come get a sneak peek of the North Barn

Built in the mid-1800’s, the North Barn was used for storing hay, housing animals, and milking cows. Its long history includes the Retreat Petting Farm, where many children and families made memories getting to know Carlos the Ox and other animals. You can experience the expansive, cathedral-like space featuring an elaborate timber frame and hand-hewn posts and beams.

This beautiful historic barn is ready for a new life. With your help, it will be renovated into a community gathering place where you can enjoy a conference, wedding, concert, or any event where a large, one-of-a-kind space is needed.

Come for a visit and see the North Barn in person and learn about our vision for this historic building.
