Frying Pan Farm Park Visitor Center

Create the perfect setting for everything from your child’s birthday party to an intimate wedding. Frying Pan's visitor center includes an auditorium and a classroom that can be rented for special occasions. Both blend rural charm with modern amenities at an affordable price, and both reveal a preserved and modernized 19th century dairy barn at their heart.
