The Big Red Barn
Located just off the bypass south of Elkhart, Indiana, the big red barn was built by Amish craftsmen using the old world tradition of joining mortise and tenon with wooden pegs. Construction on this expansive building began in 2006.
Our Mission is grounded in preserving one of the largest Amish built peg and beam barns in the nation, a beautiful and unique cultural landmark in rural Indiana’s Elkhart County.
We are committed to creating an experience-based destination, rooted in celebrating the traditional know-how of our agricultural and folk heritage and we are dedicated to supporting local artisan producers.
People shape places! We invite you to join us in fostering an environment grounded in healthy food, sustainable practices, and community building. At Southgate Crossing you can take a class, gather for large and small events and meetings, find unique shopping items, enjoy a tasty meal, and experience entertainment and fun for the entire family.
