The Gish Barn in Rittman, OH was originally built in the 1820′s. This completely restored pre-Civil War germanic style bank barn was recently awarded the Stewardship Award from the Friends of Ohio Barns. This gorgeous barn is surrounded by gardens and groves of trees, perfect for hosting an outdoor wedding reception or family reunion. In cool autumn weather, the barn can still host a small country wedding comfortably. Old-fashioned barn dances (complete with a square dance caller and band) are frequently held in the upper section! Despite the quiet, country feel, the centrally-located Gish Barn is only minutes away from I-71, 224/76, Wooster, Wadsworth and Akron. Call 330-927-9559 for more information, or to book your event!
