Owls Hoot Barn
Greene County is home to the Bronck House Museum, once owned by the family who lent their name to a borough just north of Manhattan, and renowned for its fertile, pastoral farmland. It's also a neighbor to Owl's Hoot Barn, a recently restored venue for country weddings, and one of Greene County's newest barns to get married in.
Owl's Hoot Barn in West Coxsackie – which means "land of the owls hoot" according to local Native American lore – is a historic 1800s Dutch barn open May through October for rural barn weddings. Surrounded by meadows of wildflowers, the grounds feature a winding creek lined with ancient willows, and an attached pavilion for the perfect outdoor wedding. The barn can host up to 180 people, and the venue comes with handmade wood farmhouse tables, wood French cross-back chairs, and vintage china and silver-plated flatware, among other furnishings.
