Butterfield Family Pavilion
This 5,000-square-foot building was the original 4-H building for the county fairs once held here. Keeping with the historical flavor of the building, the original interior and elegance remains, but with the added amenities of handicap-accessible restrooms, kitchen equipped with sink, refrigerator, and stove for warming, and a seating capacity of 250. Plenty of space for wedding receptions, graduation parties, group meetings, and entertainment needs.
The pavilion is a seasonal building that is open from April 15 to October 15 (approximately). Please note, the pavilion is not heated or air-conditioned.
Guests are advised to dress appropriately for the weather.
