About the Barn


The Barn was started because of Young Life at Powell High School. Laura and Larry Bailey hosted Powell High School’s Young Life in their home. Shortly after, the group of young men and women grew beyond what they had room for in their home. The idea then came about to build a place in the back yard that would accommodate the growing Young LIfe. This became know as The Barn. Soon after The Barn came into existence Laura and Larry had the idea to have other events there, not just Young Life. They envisioned having weddings, office parties, meetings, and all types of events here. Their son was even married down by the lake, next to the Barn and then his reception was held underneath the moonlight at the tennis court also next to the Barn. Their vision has grown into a wonderful event venue!
