About the Good Tymes Barn

Barns are more than just a building on a farm. They represent the heart of the American rural community and the farming industry. Used as factories, warehouses, and social gathering places, barns invoke a sense of tradition, community and security. Even as barns disappear from the landscape, they still embody a strong symbol in our heritage. To remind us of the days gone by and our rural root, many barns are being preserved. This is the case with the Good Tymes Barn in Melvin, Michigan.

After serving our country as a US Army soldier, traveling the world and teaching our youth, Connie Smith returned to her roots in Michigan's thumb area. She picked the small town of Melvin, also known as Hog Town USA, to reconnect to the rural life she had come to love as a child. In her search for just the right home, she found a barn instead. "The first time I stepped into the barn, I could hear people laughing and having a good time as they tapped their toes to the sound of a fiddle playing. So, with a faith in God's direction, and a lot of sweat from hard work, I have brought the dream alive to share with others." Connie spent close to five years refurbishing the interior of the barn to it's original appearance and converted it from a working barn to a social gather place. She truly feels at home here and as many did back in the good ol' days, and she wishes to share it with others so they can enjoy it as much as she does.

Whether you need a location for a corporate event, wedding, reception, shower, or a social gathering, the Good Tymes Barn is the perfect place for any special occasion! Call Connie today to schedule your special event at the Good Tymes Barn!
