Why We Love It: If the walls could talk at the Storybook Barn, oh, the stories they’d tell. The barn was built by the Pickle family around the time of the Civil War 15 miles east of Springfield outside of Rogersville. Today, it stands as an idyllic countryside venue. Owned by writer William Jefferson and his wife, Lois, the barn features delicate romantic and rustic details. As evidenced in a lantern in a silo and a chandelier in the heart of the barn, the venue features wood, stone and stained glass accents throughout its historic grounds. A modern pavilion sets the stage for love stories’ ceremonies, where couples begin their happily ever after.
