About Us

Family Owned and Operated

Family owned and operated, ​Bessie's Barn is the ultimate venue of uniqueness and charm. Bessie's Barn was creatively built by Nick and Kim Hindley and family in 2012 using old barn wood collected from barns around Iowa, giving the inside a very rustic look with tin ceilings, old hard wood floors, stain glass windows, and old wagon wheels. Located in rural Centerville, Iowa, Bessie's Barn is perfect for all of your special events. 


Bessie's is a very large two-story barn with seating for approximately 500 guests. We have air conditioning and heat, so you are able to book your weddings year-round. We have a full kitchen with lots of serving pieces, a full bar with bartenders included, his-and-her dressing rooms, and lots of decorations for use at no extra cost to you, as well as all of the tables and chairs in the barn. We have two gazebos outside, as well as lots of beautiful scenery and props for pictures - have your wedding inside or outside! 

We make new and improved changes to the barn all the time, if you have a suggestion or approve of one of our new additions/changes shoot us an email! We appreciate the feedback from our brides and families!
