You don’t have to get married in a barn! A new wedding venue is available near the Twin Cities Metro area in the Village of Maiden Rock, Wisconsin. School is in session for your next reception at Bugdahl Hall, just 1.5 hours east of Minneapolis.

The historic Maiden Rock schoolhouse is ready to host your wedding or special event in a charmingly revamped classic school gym, minutes from beautiful Lake Pepin in Wisconsin. The vintage basketball floor and sky-high ceilings will transport you and your wedding guests to a beautiful and unique dimension. Master woodworker Gary Peterson’s handiwork and artist Jennifer Peterson’s finishing touches provide a marriage of styles that will suit any event. Retro European gastronomy, hand-painted industrial chic, American eclectic and local Pepin area history all influence the colorful, yet subtle, backdrop to your union.

  • Table seating for 70 (100 for standing receptions and lounge seating)
