Hold the wedding of your dreams at Updike Farmstead! 


Nestled in the heart of the Princeton Battlefield/Stony Brook Settlement Historic District, the six-acre site consists of a farmhouse, large barn, windmill, garden and several outbuildings. The beautifully restored late 18th/early 19th century farmhouse has museum exhibitions on the first floor, and a second floor space available to serve as a bridal suite. Originally constructed in 1892, the barn has been recently renovated to be transformed into a premier event space. The front lawn is a picturesque setting for ceremonies, and the back porch of the house, as well as the adjacent “backyard,” can enhance the flow of your event. Surrounded by the bucolic landscape of preserved farmland, Updike Farmstead is the perfect venue for the couple that is searching for the elegant, yet rustic, country feel. Other amenities include:

  • Central heat and air conditioning in the farmhouse and barn restrooms
  • Ample parking
  • Small kitchen in farmhouse and barn
  • Accessible for guests with disabilities
  • Wi-fi
