2022 Best Barn Venue

Peirce Farm at Witch Hill

While the Victorian mansion on this 19th-century estate in Topsfield boasts a Gilded Age past, it’s the newly refurbished 1873 barn that delivers memorably rustic events. Swap vows outside amid the foliage — and maybe even snap a pic with the property’s resident animals — before hightailing it to the transformed space. Inside, high-set windows stream in sunlight across hardwood floors, while a shimmering chandelier suspended from the two-story ceiling emits a soft glow for evening revelry. How’s that for romantic?
