Where Event Planning Is Made Simple

     The Barn Event Center is one of the largest event location in Townsend. It is a unique venue with a historical past. Our main dining room is 4000 sq ft. with a dance floor, stage and PA system for your use.

     The History behind the Barn Event Center of the Smokies: Cantilever barns are pioneer farm structures found principally in East Tennessee counties. Their characteristic features is an overhang, or cantilever, which supports a large second story loft atop one or more log cribs on the bottom story Most seem to have been built mid 1900's through the early 1900's. The unusual design may derive from German forbay barns in Pennsylvania, built into the hillside with an overhang along the out facing side.  Here in the East Tennessee mountains there are more humid days than not. This style barn was very useful to the farmers by keeping their equipment and goods dry and easy to access.

     The cribs of this barn are made with logs from an 1860 tobacco cantilever barn from Rogersville, Tennessee. The 4500 sq ft Leconte Room is supported by three major beams that are 12 x 18 x 90 ft. long. Theses beams have 10 ft long scarf joints which are some of the largest on records. Scarf joints are cut in a zigzag fashion then put together like a key so that they won't move up or down. The timbers used to build these super beams came from a dead stand of trees that suffered a forest fire in Canada. The wood was shopped to Oliver Springs where these huge beams were milled by Blue Heron Timber Works. The roof support is the traditional mortise and tenon wood pegged timber frame design as built in the 1800's. At 50 ft x 90 The Barn is the largest cantilever barn on record. 

     The beautiful leaded glass front doors of The Barn came originally from an Old English Pub and were purchased at an antique store in Knoxville's Old City. The antique piece at the right is pat of a broom making set that a local blind man used to make his brooms. The barn is decorated with antiques, carriages and freight wagons from the mid 1800's.

     The Barn Event Center is ideal for conference planning or corporate meetings. The Barn is designed to host small and large company corporate events. Our built in stage and PA system offer maximum comfort and space for presentations and award ceremonies. Our conference rooms have wireless internet , a projector and screen to make your presentations easy to set up and rum smoothly.
