The Lumber Yard Event Center Welcomes You

The Lumber Yard Event Center has been part of Wayland’s history since 1898. Restoration started in 2017 by the Shepherd family, and much of the original lumber in the barn was salvaged to create a beautiful historical venue with a touch of rustic charm. The original exposed wood beams still glorify the vintage vaulted ceiling. The venue’s beautiful private grounds, relaxing sitting areas, and flower gardens offer many picturesque locations to capture photographs to enjoy for years. Our dedication in preserving this priceless piece of heaven is important to us so it can be used for your special day. It is the perfect place to hold corporate events, family reunions, birthday parties, showers, and of course – wedding ceremonies and receptions. This affordable venue is centrally located 30 minutes from Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, and Michigan’s lakeshore. Tours are available by appointment.

Mission Statement

The Lumber Yard Event Center’s mission is to provide memorable and successful events that exceed our clients’ expectations. This tucked away gem is a remarkable gathering place for any special event. We want to help make every event a celebration; let us help you create a day to remember.
