Step out of the busy world and into the peaceful setting of The Civil War Ranch. We offer venues for the perfect Country Wedding -- whether it's outdoors or indoors! Call us at 417-237-0771 to start planning your special day! The Ranch's two-story Wedding Barn events facility includes new climate-controlled restrooms, a bridal dressing room, and a catering preparation room. The upstairs Banquet Hall's 9' wide x 6' tall windows offer a panoramic view of the pond, meadows and woodlands below. The hall accommodates up to 86 guests seated at round banquet tables. The first-floor Banquet Room seats 64 guests at round banquet tables. If you prefer an outdoor ceremony, the 2.5-acre spring-fed pond offers a perfect backdrop. Or, for a larger group, the Barn Courtyard and shade of the "Wedding Tree" would be ideal. The pond offers great opportunities to capture camera shots of wildlife and wetland foliage Ė not to mention wedding shots! And, if you would like to drop a line, the pond offers catch-and-release fishing for catfish, bass and bluegill. Try your luck at casting from the pondís shore or from the pondís new dock. Donít fear, the pond is not used by any livestock Ė and no domestic animals are allowed either. The 71-acre Civil War Ranch located on the historic Civil War Road in Carthage, MO, has more than 50 acres of beautiful pasture, wetlands and wooded terrain to explore. Maybe youíre looking to take family or employees on a hike, horse ride, wagon ride, or carriage ride! The Civil War Ranch Trail offers acres and acres of pastures, meadows and forested land. But make sure you take along a camera for the photo opportunities! Are you hankering for a family or company picnic or dinner? Try out the shade in the Courtyard Picnic Pole Barn and the pair of regulation-size horseshoe-tossing pits. The Courtyard is perfect for a multiplicity of games and activities.
