Muhlhauser Barn

The Muhlhauser Barn is a historic barn venue located in West Chester. Originally built in the 1880’s as part of the Muhlhauser-Windish Brewing Company in Fairfield, OH, the barn was dismantled and reassembled in Beckett Park.

One of the larger barn venues in Ohio, the barn has a seating capacity of 220 people. Rentals, like many government owned venues, are affordable at $1,000 for a full day rental and include tables and chairs. It is a DIY venue, so expect to do most of the setup and cleanup work, or have someone do it for you.

Venue Details

The barn is a heavy timber-framed structure with exposed wood and a white painted exterior. Inside the barn are large, modern bathrooms, a catering kitchen, and a mezzanine level with seating for approximately 60 people. The main floor has a large seating area for about 160 people and a dance floor. Outside, a large deck overlooks the pond behind the barn. Outside is the Moerlein Gazebo, a popular place to host small outside ceremonies.

Overall Rating: 5.0

5 Stars – We had our wedding here and the venue was beautiful for such an affordable price! The only thing I could’ve asked for would have been air conditioning. But if you open both the front and back doors, there is a great breeze and flow-through for air.
