The Wells Barn is an existing heavy timber barn frame from the late 1800s. After relocating the barn from Knox County, the barn was renovated into a new education, community outreach, and events facility on Franklin Park Conservatory's Community Garden campus reclad with a new envelope. The Wells Barn holds weddings and business events, along with educational programs. Community outreach and education uses include cooking demonstration classes, do-it-yourself cooking classes and tastings within the kitchen space, children’s and youth classes, adult classes, summer camps, lectures and conferences/symposia. Event rentals focus on weddings, social events, corporate events, and similar special events.
