About The Barn

About us - The Barn

The Barn, where formal elegance is found in an informal setting.

Nestled in the northern Shenandoah Valley, The Barn is located in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia in a renovated barn which dates back to the Civil War period. Customers often think of The Barn owner, Arlene Pasco, and her staff as family. Over 45 years of photographs from customer weddings, proms, dances and pageants fill our overflowing scrapbooks. The Barn takes pride in its old fashioned approach to customer service and its professional staff is always happy to help you with your wedding and formalwear needs.
