Brighton Acres


Brighton Acres boasts one of the most unique rural reception and event facilities in the state of Wisconsin. A working farm since the late 1800's, the venue has been converted to its present state as an event center over the past 8 years, preserving as much of its history, early and recent alike. Brighton Acres is named after the township in which it sits. Today, known as the Town of Nekimi; the Town of Brighton was settled in 1847. This rural property provides several options to meet the needs of your specific gathering; whether it is a wedding, corporate event, fundraiser, anniversary or any other special family gathering. The main feature of the property is The Barn; erected in 1915 by the Ruddy Family. The Barn was one of the first of its kind in the area, utilizing a new technique where each block of the wall was made on site. This open concept barn with all original wood presents a blank canvas for you to create the ideal ambiance for your event. A landscaped courtyard flanked by a barn beam gazebo connects an old history to the more recent; the farm's former machine shed. Now renovated into "The Shed", this banquet facility houses indoor restrooms, entertainment areas, an air-conditioned full-service bar and a private bridal suite.
