Event Space: Yes


The Barn at Allen Acres Wedding and Reception Venue sits on 3 and 1/2 acres just on the edge of town in Rock Falls IL. The property is surrounded by a cornfield and offers a serene tranquil destination for your Wedding and reception. The property is less than a 5 minute drive to restaurants and hotels.

The Dairy Barn was built in the 1920’s and restored in 2011. It boasts a beautiful 26 foot vaulted ceiling in the upstairs haymow with some of its original architecture still intact. During the process of the restoration, reclaimed barn wood and reclaimed hardware were used whenever possible, maintaining the rustic feel of the Barn. We’ve added a 5 foot wide set of stairs leading to the upstairs space and a small deck with stairs, off of the back of the Barn, giving the bride a dramatic entrance, down the aisle, and to the alter. The upstairs haymow has a capacity of 150 people for a Wedding ceremony. The downstairs area, where the dairy cows were kept, in the early years of the barn, also has a capacity for 150 people.

The house on the property is a brick 6 bedroom farmhouse built in the 1920’s as well. It is in the process of being updated to accommodate the bride, groom and wedding party in preparation for the bride and grooms nuptials. We are in the process of preparing several rooms in the house to accommodate those brides and grooms wishing to stay on the property the night or weekend of their wedding. We hope to be finished with these updates by Spring 2014.
The farm has been in the Allen family for over 80 years. My grandfather had a Dairy business in Sterling in the 1930’s, using the Dairy barn, for his dairy cows. My father grew up on the farm as did myself and two sisters.
