Learn about Issaquah’s Pickering Barn: Weddings, Events & More
William Pickering was an Englishman by birth who became an American statesman and business owner. A governorship appointment by President Lincoln brought him to Washington, then called the territory of Columbia. He purchased land in the area that would become a multi-generational family farm and the site of the Pickering Barn, which is today on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Pickering Farm produced hay and dairy products from the late 1800s until the barn and land were donated to the city of Issaquah in 1994. It now serves as a premier venue for weddings, receptions and other events, including the Issaquah Farmers Market. Their banquet rooms can seat up to 350 guests and the courtyard is a beautiful and tranquil space for wedding ceremonies and social gatherings.
