Coop’s Event Barn is a ten-acre farm setting in southern Minnesota between Rochester and Owatonna and 90 minutes south of the Minneapolis/St. Paul. The grounds, the two story barn, and the renovated granary create the perfect destination for your next gathering. Whether it is a wedding, reception, dance, reunion, business meeting, or group gathering of any kind, Coop’s Event Barn can accommodate up to 350 attendees. Rental includes use of 250 white, padded, resin chairs along with 60 inch round and 8 foot banquet tables.
The Barn with it’s new gray steel roof, has two stories with an indoor stairway leading to the open loft. This nostalgic open loft is clean and airy and ready for a barn dance, reception seating, or showing a movie on the drop down screen. The downstairs has north and south sliding doors that when open afford you sweeping views of the surrounding landscape. The adjoining milk room has two barn windows to let in light while giving you a private space.
The Granary has been turned into a charming addition to the grounds. The building has been completely insulated to help with climate control and has a ceiling fan and five windows allow in light and country breezes. We carefully tore down both a corn crib and a granary on nearby farms and used the red barn board siding to finish the inside walls of the granary. Rescued well-worn galvanized steel complete the look.
Ample and accessible pasture parking makes it easy for your guests to park when they arrive. The open lawn area is a great gathering space for games, socializing, or ceremonies.
