Magnolia Barn

Located just 90 minutes north of Boston, the Magnolia Barn is one of Maine's best-kept secrets. Atop of thousands of acres, Magnolia Barn offers beautiful 19th century farm buildings, barns, and grounds overlooking Wells Bay. Host your ceremony in the restored saltwater barn or along the fields among the trees as a breathtaking back drop. The barn is able to accommodate up to 150 guests, or choose to host up to 250 guests for your wedding using the barn space as your cocktail hour with a spacious tent set up right outside. At Magnolia Barn, you're truly able to make your wedding day the one you've always envisioned.

Looking forward to giving back? Magnolia Barn is a National Historic Site that is dedicated to understanding coastal science and climate change. It is now a 21st century scientific research facility that serves as an ecological preserve and education center. All proceeds from your wedding help support climate research, education, and conservation for the coast of Southern Maine.
