The Thompson Barn

Thompson Barn is one of the most exciting and popular event sites in Johnson County. It started as a barn on the historic Lackman-Thompson Estate and has been transformed over the years to become the perfect venue for weddings, receptions, parties, business meetings and other gatherings.


Thompson Barn is located at 11184 Lackman Road in Lenexa. Directions are available on its website.


Room rentals that include alcohol of any type are required to have an alcohol permit on file, which costs an additional $100. One offduty Lenexa Police Officer will be at your event. Security guidelines are available on the barn’s website.
