Avon Century Barn is a 1913 Wells Barn that has been beautifully restored and repurposed as an amazing rustic and elegant wedding venue. Like all Wells Barns, its interior resembles a cathedral with its curved interior trusses. There is plenty of room to dine and dance under the glow of glistening chandeliers, bistro lights and dramatic draping. Vintage wicker sitting areas provide a place to mingle on the lush green lawn.

A stately Greek Revival house and expansive gardens adorn the spacious property. The setting is nothing less than enchanted.
