About The Barn at Stratford

The Garth Oberlander Barn was erected in 1848 by George Beiber. The stone-end bank barn was built two stories tall and the main portion measures 84′ by 36′. The foundation and stone end walls were are squared and coursed limestone rubble from the plentiful deposits of limestone at by the nearby Olentangy River. The massive timber structural elements, many of which can easily be seen from inside the barn, are the hand-hewn products of the first-growth surrounding forest.

This historic barn is now owned by The Delaware County Historical Society and operated at The Barn at Stratford. This beautiful historic barn is now available for your wedding, organization, or family event.
