Venue Spotlight: The Farmer’s Museum

To continue with out new series Venue and Vendor Spotlights – I bring to you the Farmer’s Museum in Cooperstown, New York. Do you remember Katie & Tim’s wedding? That was our first time planning a wedding at the Farmer’s Museum and we had such an amazing time executing every little detail!

There are so many great little gems at the Farmer’s Museum – –

Cornwallville Church—An eighteenth century Methodist Church, originally moved to The Farmers’ Museum in the early 1960’s.  The organ and piano are both functional and each dates from the mid nineteenth century.  Seating for up to 175 people.

Bump Tavern—An eighteenth century tavern, originally moved to The Farmers’ Museum in 1952.  The Tavern is perfect for intimate receptions and rehearsal dinners, seating up to 20 guests in the downstairs Tap Room and up to 40 guests in the second floor Ballroom.

Empire State Carousel—Open in May of 2006, the Carousel is a perfect place for small receptions and after-wedding photography.

Louis C. Jones Center—Located in the Main Barn, the LCJC seats up to 180 guests for a wedding reception and dinner.  The LCJC is heated and the adjoining Courtyard is available at no additional cost.

If you haven’t at least toured the Farmer’s Museum, you totally should – they have so many great events and tours!
