April 2019 – Customer of the Month
The history of JM Collingwood Barn starts in 1913 when John Martin (Mart) Collingwood built the barn to house his Percheron workhorses that helped him farm over 3800 contiguous acres. The barn is built like a Maltese Cross and has over 16,000 square feet and ceilings reaching over 25 feet tall.In 1986, Dan and Brenda Pace purchased the property, and renovated the barn. However, in 2015, 110 mph winds damaged the West wing. Many contractors told them that the damage was irreparable, but GCI Construction said, “It’s not as bad as it seems.” This became the motto of the entire project which took 9 months to complete.
After the restoration was complete, they decided to turn this one-of-kind barn into an event venue for anyone that is looking for a location that is a blend of rustic and elegant.
The barn is now known as JM Collingwood Barn, and can comfortably accommodate up to 300 people. It is the perfect venue for corporate and casual events. For more information, go to jmcollingwoodbarn.com.
