The Barns at Locust Hall by Sensational Host is a farm wedding venue located in Jobstown, NJ. This picturesque venue lends its name to a grove of locust trees on the property. With two barns, a mansion, and expansive pastures, the property is sure to leave a lasting impression on all of your guests. It provides a quiet sanctuary for you to wed surrounded by rolling hills and acres of farmland. Locust Hall Farm traces its history back to 1692. The land was settled by the Black family, who constructed the first building on the property. Their farmhouse still stands, having had many renovations over the years. Almost a century later, the small stone barn was built by General John Black. The farm stayed with the Blacks until 1948 when it was purchased by the Tallman family. The Tallmans participated in the Burlington County Farmland Preservation Program to ensure the protection of this historic property. In 2013, the farm changed hands once again and was reopened as an idyllic event venue. This venue is located just off a quiet country road and is surrounded by miles of farms and local wineries. A private drive lined with trees winds through the pastures up to the mansion. Guests are welcomed onto the neatly manicured lawn before the ceremony, where they can enjoy panoramic views of the countryside. Many couples choose to hold their ceremony on the lawn, or they can use the historic barn for indoor nuptials. It features high ceilings and exposed beams, lending a rustic air to events held here. A second barn offers stunning views of the property and opens out onto a patio, making it perfect for dining al fresco. The Barns at Locust Hall is spread across 320 acres in central New Jersey. It is less than an hour’s drive from Philadelphia and only 90 minutes from New York City. This venue can accommodate intimate weddings of fewer than 50 guests as well as large events of 150. The Stone Barn is a versatile space that can be used for ceremonies, cocktail hour, or small receptions. The larger Breezeway Barn features 3,000 square feet of space and tall windows for ample natural light. Sensational Host can provide catering for weddings held at this venue and offer assistance in creating the perfect menu.
