ABOUT US

W.F. Ploenges a German immigrant settled on section 426, Hundred of McDonnell in 1877. With his farming activities expanding, Friedrich built a large barn with stone picked up on the property, possibly the largest building of its type in the South east at the time. In 1919 Otto died suddenly and in 1928 Agusta sold the property to her husband’s nephew, Adelbert Spehr and he conceived the idea to convert the “Barn” into a Palais after the style he had seen in Germany on a trip to Europe in 1925. Consequently in 1937 it opened with 1000 people from the South east of South Australia and Western district of Victoria flocked to the opening of the” Barn Palais”. Today the activities of The Barn have been expanded with the acquisition of the neighbouring Barn Accommodation and the development of The Barn Catering business.
