The Barn is located in central Arkansas on the grounds of P. Allen Smith's Garden Home at Moss Mountain Farm. This bucolic ornamental farm sits on top of a ridge overlooking the Arkansas River Valley. The property includes two terraced gardens, a one acre vegetable garden, orchards, daffodil hill, pastures, poultry, sheep and even a donkey named Moose.
The Barn fits perfectly into this pastoral setting with its dark stained cypress wood siding, red metal roof with cupolas, and traditional barn lighting fixtures. Few could guess that it started life as a plain-Jane metal building with a low pitched roof. Its appearance didn't blend with the farm's architectural style. "It was one of those situations where it was too costly to remove and rebuild, and in keeping with my green theme, I couldn't see all that material hauled to a landfill, so I decided to give it a makeover and repurpose it as a conference center," Allen said. Steel columns and wooden roof trusses redefined the roofline and cypress siding and a metal roof completed the building's transformation.
The Barn is ready for your conference or workshop. The auditorium style interior holds up to 132 people with Audio Visual and Internet access.
The Garden Home at Moss Mountain Farm has always been a magical spot that cultivates creative ideas and forward thinking. The Barn is a gathering place that offers all the modern day amenities set in a truly unique and beautiful location.
