Wedding Venue

Whether you’ve dreamed of a wedding with a romantic European flair, one that’s rustic or traditional, at the Manning Hausbarn-Heritage Park, you can customize the setting to reflect your own personal style.


The crown jewel of the Park is the authentic 1660 German Hausbarn. Other historic structures include a 1917 farmstead that is on the National Register of Historic Places and a century-old church with a long aisle and tall steeple.

Set amid the natural beauty of the rolling fields and prairies of western Iowa, the possibilities for taking great wedding photos are endless.

A unique and memorable experience for both you and your guests. With the unique décor and historic setting, you will treat your friends and family to a celebration that they’ll remember for years!

Rental Options

In addition to the historic sites, Hansen Hall in the Konferenz Centre, a modern facility set at the Park’s entrance, is the perfect setting for your wedding reception, rehearsal dinner or any social gathering. Designed to complement the Hausbarn, it has old world charm inside and out.

Any or all of the venues may be rented at one time. Rental includes one day to decorate and one day to clean up in addition to table service.
We work with a list of preferred caterers. All are licensed/insured to provide food and beverage in the hall.

In addition to the patio next to the Halle where food and beverages can be enjoyed, there are many beautiful places on the grounds for outdoor wedding ceremonies.
There is ample free parking at the Hausbarn and at Trinity Church.

Weddings and rentals of the facilities may be scheduled throughout the year even during the winter months when the Park is closed for the season.

The south hall which holds 250 or more and has the dance floor would be $350, the bar is $100, and the north hall which holds about 120 is $150.  Renting the Hausbarn for a wedding will cost you $350 since we assume that weather may make you use Trinity Church.  The total for the south hall, bar, and Hausbarn would be $800.

“We had our wedding at the Hausbarn in August of 2014. We wanted to have an outdoor wedding and this was a perfect location for it. We loved all the landscaping and the peacefulness of the area around the Hausbarn. The moment we saw it we knew we wanted our wedding there. It was exactly what we had envisioned! When we went into the reception hall the country style decor and unique atmosphere made us realize we just had to have our wedding and reception at the Manning German Hausbarn. Freda was accommodating to our schedules and made wedding planning a lot less stressful. Thanks to all the staff at the Hausbarn our wedding went off without a hitch and it’s a memory that will last a lifetime! I would recommend it to anyone, especially those who want to have an outdoor wedding, it is a beautiful must see!”
