When Melhorn Manor was a working farm, our Corn and Tobacco Barns were used to store harvested corn and tobacco leaves, respectively. Since then, both spaces have been renovated for commercial use and are the perfect areas to hold corporate events, family gatherings, parties, and other special occasions.

The Corn Barn is for seasonal use only but features a rustic charm that you just can't find at any other Lancaster County event venue.
