Kingston Place dates back to the early 1800’s when the King family moved to Vermont from the Kingston, Rhode Island area. The family had a very successful farming and merchant operation by the 1870’s with receipts totaling around $18,000 per month (that’s about $320k per month in today’s dollars)! In the later part of the twentieth century the house and barns fell into disrepair. Fortunately, we have just completed a historic preservation of the house and barns and are opening to the public in 2018.
The house is finished and ready for occupancy. The main wedding barn is getting a new floor, complete with 17″ wide pine flooring and a beautiful beech wood dance floor. The old barn floor was not true or safe so this will be a big improvement. The barn is also getting new electrical and fire detection equipment throughout. These projects will be finished by the end of February 2018. A note on safety – Kingston Place will be fully permitted and we are working with the Vermont Department of Public Safety and local authorities to make sure we are in compliance (this has not always been the case with barn weddings).
If you want an authentic, as opposed to contrived, venue for your barn wedding, with the potential via the homestead, for the wedding party to have access to relax, prepare, unwind and celebrate in a well laid out environment, then Kingston Place offers a unique venue to make your dream wedding come true. If you look at the pictures below, there’s a reason that rainbow is rising from our wedding barn!
We hope to work with you to make your wedding spectacular!!!
