Guests will enjoy exploring the barn with its loft and balcony; roaming the many dog-friendly trails through the surrounding 40 acres of meadows and woods; and taking a step back into early 20th century history while exploring the cabin, barn, and granary, built between 1900 and 1920 by Henry Shagway and his uncle, Pete Espiew, both Ottawa Indians.

The Arts Barn is also a fantastic location to host your event - wedding, birthday party, reunion, fundraiser, meeting, or anniversary! 

In addition, the Arts Barn is part of the Mason County Barn Quilt Trail. See the 'Blazing Star' Quilt on the north face of the barn and hear a history of the barn using the On-Cell device at the base of the barn. (Get a map from the Chamber of Commerce and check out the ten other barns on the trail too!)
