Ed and Kali Livengood have always loved sharing life's special moments with family and friends.  Now, they are sharing their property for others to create those special moments as well.  


The Brown Barn has been equipped to be completely climate controlled so you are able to celebrate year-round! We are handicap accessible with restrooms on both floors of the barn.

The Shed, located adjacent to the brown barn off a cement lot, is available for events as well.  This outdoor location, in addition to our first barn, is complete with cement floors, beautiful lights, climate controlled atmosphere, and simple amenities to keep your night wonderful!  The shed boasts twice the square footage of the upstairs of the barn, giving you plenty of room to party the night away!


Take a moment to look around and see what is available....and remember, life is good at the barn.


What started as a simple idea, has grown into an amazing experience.  Here are the barns that host the friends and families celebrating each week.


Livengood's Barn is located on 20 acres, nestled among pastures and rolling hills.  The intimate property is home to three barns, two of which have been remodeled for special gatherings.  The property for rent also includes a large open lawn area, and quaint pond with dock.

The downstairs of the "brown barn" includes two dressing rooms and private bathrooms for guests.  There is an open area as well that is perfect for serving lines, small gatherings, or cocktail hour.

The second level of the barn is adored for its simplicity and charm.  All original beams and barn boards show through, giving it the perfect rustic feel for your event.  There are also two handicap bathrooms upstairs for the ease of all your guests.  A large deck has also been added on to the upstairs, making the perfect inside-outside feel for every event.


The possibilities of how you celebrate your special event are endless. You may envision an indoor wedding in the loft to an outdoor tent celebration on the lawn.  Or use our arbor by the pond for a perfect backdrop for your wedding.  Maybe you will even choose to have the wedding and reception upstairs.  Our barn will help you make the most of your wedding day.  Your ideas are our inspiration!


The "Shed" has taken on its own identity over the past few years.  Over the course of July 2018, this barn was updated with new flooring, walls, doors and windows along with insulation throughout to accommodate heating and air conditioning as needed for events.  This barn has been loved for its open feel and now the environment will be even more rich with temperature control.
