Our rich history

Heart & History: Timeless Beauty

Fusing the perfect touches of rustic elegance with the conveniences of modern accommodations, The Brownstone is a premier, one-of-a-kind wedding and event venue in Topeka, Kansas.

The Brownstone has a rich architectural history being originally designed by Kansas State Architecture students in 1927 as a dairy barn. The venue, which sits on five acres of land, has lived through the Topeka flood of 1951 and reinvented itself multiple times through family homes, small businesses and a bed and breakfast.

The barn was purchased in early 2016 by Connie and Steve Brown, of Topeka, with the goal to create a place of celebration for the community to enjoy. Both owners were born and raised in the Topeka. After completing college, Connie and Steve went on to get married, raise children and become involved in the Topeka business community.

“We want to create a venue where people can celebrate their life events together, in a space they are proud of,” said owner Connie Brown. “We worked very closely with brides and businesses around the area to ensure we were creating a space that meets their needs and would be flexible enough to accommodate each unique vision.”

Extensive renovation of the barn began in summer of 2016. The new-and-improved event space will be open to the public in spring 2017. It will include a limestone patio with outdoor fireplace, beautiful landscaping, and decks creating the ideal setting for outdoor events and weddings.

The original structure will provide 2,400 square feet of open area for receptions, weddings, and corporate events, as well as the original salt-glazed block silo which will feature a circular wine cellar and bar. The first floor will include advanced technology and meeting space for corporate events, retreats and much more.
