The first wedding at The Barn at Gibbet Hill took place in 2002 when Jed and Asia’s fantastic outdoor wedding plans got rained out. Back then the Barn was completely unrenovated – hay bales were moved to the edge of the room and the tractor had to be parked outside so a makeshift wedding aisle could be made. After witnessing the undeniable magic of that day, the idea to transform the Barn into a permanent wedding venue began to take hold. Two years later, after a massive renovation of the Barn was completed, The Barn at Gibbet Hill officially opened for business. And two years after that, CBS-4 crowned the Barn at Gibbet Hill the best wedding venue in the Boston Area! The Barn can hold up to 220 people with a dance floor. There is an outside, heated deck with a permanent roof over it that is used for cocktail receptions.
