The Byron Colby Barn, a Lake County dairy barn, was built in
1885 and restored in 1996 to serve as a community center for
Prairie Crossing and the larger community.

Hold your special event at the beautifully restored Byron Colby Barn in Grayslake, named for the local dairy farmer who built it in 1885. Attend a concert at the Byron Colby Barn to experience beautiful music, lectures, and more in a unique setting.

The Byron Colby Barn was named the 2011 Best Budget Wedding Venue by Chicago Magazine and one of the 2013 Best Local Place to Get Married in the Daily Herald’ Readers Choice Awards. The Barn can be rented 7 days a week for elegant weddings, professional meetings, intimate concerts, and other events.
