From Our Website

The Conrad Botzum Farmstead, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, is located in Cuyahoga Valley National Park, at 3486 Riverview Road, Akron, Ohio, between Bath and Ira Roads. We are on the West side of the road, with a small sign and wood corral gate and fence. The long gravel driveway takes you across the Towpath Trail and across the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad tracks, and up to what is called ‘the second bottom'. It's a very fertile plateau about 50 feet above the Cuyahoga River.


Imagine a country wedding and reception, surrounded by the beautiful hills of the Cuyahoga River Valley. Weddings and receptions are the most popular type of events. We have had brides arrive at the Farmstead in a horse drawn carriage and by limousine. From paper plate barbecues to china and crystal stemware banquets. There have been flowing gowns and tuxedos and short dresses and blue blazers with khakis. A range of decor to suite any taste.


Our Bank Barn seats 170-180 guests with round tables, reserving space for a catering line and music with dancing on the deck. Our 25' x 45' covered deck can also be utilized for overflow seating to accommodate an additional 30-40 guests. The entire side of the barn opens to the deck allowing all guests to feel included. 10 acre Available weather permitting. Guests have been seated on folding card table chairs, white padded wedding chairs, green plastic lawn chairs and pillow case covered bales of hay.
