Franklin Park Conservatory’s Wells Barn
Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens
ABC Excellence in Construction Award
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.
