On a farm everything starts in the barn. It is the safety net for all the animals it houses. It keeps them warm and dry, offers a safe place for them to have their babies, and is a quiet place where they end their day.
This barn was built in the early 1900’s and in that time the property was enormous, said to be over 3000 acres. There are 5 of these barns in the area, as well as an old schoolhouse and the blacksmith shop, and this particular barn was used for milling wood.
The James Longmire family had a cabin on this property with a huge rock fireplace. The cabin burned down and after WWII and a German family built the house around the fireplace where it still stands today. When the McClarrinon family originally purchased the property in 1994, the barn was about to collapse. Mike and Kathy saw so much potential in reviving the barn that they set out to turn the property into a horse training facility. A lifelong dream and impressively successful, Kathy ran the horse training business until 2016. Retiring from training horses wasn’t the end of the barn; it was the beginning of a new journey, one that would be a connection of some remarkable people and lives… Longmire Wedding & Event Barn.
The McClarrinon family graciously offers it to those who are joining their lives and celebrating events. Welcome to Longmire Wedding & Event Barn, we can’t wait to meet you!
