The Barn at Stratford’s Authentic History

The Garth Oberlander Barn was erected in 1848 by George Bieber. 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 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 owned by The Delaware County Historical Society and operated as The Barn at Stratford. This beautiful historic barn is available for your weddings and receptions, organization events, and social occasions.
