About Us

The Gish Barn is centered on 100-acre farmland, overlooking a gorgeous valley in Rittman Ohio. Twenty minutes west of Akron Ohio and an hour south of Cleveland it’s easily accessed from several major highways.

Built in the 1830’s by the Gish family, but recently restored in 2013 by Ric and Denise Weis. The Gish Barn’s original eighteenth-century hand-hewed beams and spacious square footage is the ideal place for a rustic and elegant country wedding. Vaulted ceilings are neutrally decorated in lovely tulle and lights, accenting the grandness of the barn’s century-old interior with subtle elegance.

The grounds around the Barn include a wide spacious area ideal for a tent, a beautiful wooded area popular for ceremonies, and a fire pit for a more casual affair. All outdoor spaces are landscaped and highlight the natural beauty and history of the Gish Barn, the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos and a natural and comfortable environment that will surely impress your guests.
