Erected in 1968, Backwoods Venue 222 began its life as an antique museum located just outside of Gower, Missouri. Owned and operated by the Schuster Family, The Platte Purchase Antique Barn proudly hosted visitors from all over the country.
With the 70 foot Great Hall, 22 separately decorated rooms, full-service restaurant and shops, guests were guaranteed to embark on a truly special journey back in time.
In what can only be defined as a “Divine Calling”, the museum was purchased by the Andrews Family on April 15, 2015 and immediately went to work transforming the barn into Aimee’s vision of a venue full of purpose, character, and above all else, LOVE.
