Stone Manor on 79th

Overland Park is getting a new wedding venue just in time for the winter wedding season! Stone Manor on 79th will be located in The Strang Line Car Barn, which was built by railroad magnate William B. Strang Jr. in 1906. The historical building served as a spot to house and repair trolleys for the Missouri and Kansas Interurban Railway and provided power to the electric track until 1940 when the rail line was shut down. Beginning in December 2024, the building will be transformed into a space where brides and grooms will exchange "I do's". Renovations at this family-owned and operated venue are currently taking place to preserve its timeless and unique charm while upgrading and improving its facilities.
