Located in a field of rolling native prairie, this wedding and event space is an expression of modernism reflecting an old-fashioned approach.
Prospect House is a wedding and event space standing in a twenty-acre field of rolling native prairie. It can accommodate celebrations in numerous configurations indoors, outdoors, and on a huge screened-in porch. Above the main hall is a large wind vane. Its mast extends down into the room and supports a 12-foot diameter ring that can be decorated. The ring turns with the breezes, connecting festivities inside with the world outside. This is modernism reflecting an old-fashioned approach: boards, white paint, and corrugated sheet metal, generously open to almost any function, reframing peoples’ awareness of simple things.
