River House and Dance Barn

Situated along the banks of the Middle Raccoon River in the heart of the Whiterock Valley, the River House Dance Barn, prairies, and gardens provide breathtaking scenery and serve as a gorgeous backdrop for your special event.

The River house Barn was originally constructed in 1899, but converted to a dance barn during Prohibition. It has been said that there has never been a “bad party” here. And judging by the stunning location, that isn’t hard to believe!
