Warm and rustic, Hallockville Museum Farm in Riverhead is a one-of-a-kind North Fork wedding venue.

With its historic and agricultural backdrop, the museum farm is unlike any traditional catering hall. There are 19 beautifully maintained historic buildings on the grounds, some dating back more than 250 years. The Naugles Barn on the west side on the property serves as the reception area. Built in 1937, the 1,400-square-foot barn is a veritable blank slate for your wedding.

“It’s very much a ‘do it yourself’ venue,” said Herb Strobel, Hallockville’s executive director. “You can make it what you want and really personalize your event.”

The venue is ideal for an indoor or outdoor wedding. The 15-foot-tall barn doors open out to more than 500 acres of preserved farmland, providing a peaceful and authentic rural setting for your special day.

With the addition of an outdoor tent, Hallockville can accommodate around 175 guests. The museum grounds are also a popular choice for the couple looking for a country setting to capture their wedding day on camera.

Guests are free to explore the property, including all the museum buildings and animal stalls. As an added bonus, all payments to the nonprofit museum farm are used to maintain the historic property.
