Imagine Your Wedding in the Beautiful Flint Hills!
photos by Jacob Loafman Photography
Volland is situated in a Flint Hills valley along a scenic byway in rolling hills of tallgrass prairie. The land, the town, and the Volland Store provide a lovely setting for a smaller, intimate wedding of 80 to 100 guests. A tent on the lawn of the Store expands the space, as does the blacksmith shop and the patio area nearby. The historic town of Volland offers an assortment of original outbuildings as backdrops for wedding photos, as well as adding an element of fun and exploration for your wedding party and guests. Following the ceremony and dinner a dark sky full of stars and the whistle of a train rolling by mark the conclusion of an extraordinary and unforgettable wedding celebration.
The Volland Store partners with Hitched Planning+Floral of Kansas City, MO, who will handle all the details of your wedding, from vendor recommendation to rental coordination, from event design to full wedding day coordination. Hitched will create a unique and memorable wedding for you and your family.

The Gallery is an open space that rises to the roofline, revealing the original second-story windows. Adjustable lighting creates a comfortable atmosphere where available tables and chairs allow various configurations: a maximum seating of 80 for dining, 100 for a reception, or about 90 for seated wedding guests. Larger weddings can be accommodated outdoors by using a rental tent or the Blacksmith Shop and adjoining areas, leaving the Gallery available for a reception before dinner or for music and dancing afterwards. A digital projector is capable of reproducing large imagery on the Gallery’s BigWhiteWall from a laptop computer, BluRay and DVD, as well as DirecTV. A catering kitchen and two restrooms serve this level. ADA access is available. Two additional bathrooms (with showers) are located on the Lower Level.
The Blacksmith Shop is charming and rustic with a good floor that may be used for a band, dancing, or an intimate dinner. A small stone patio, a convenient space for an outdoor bar, and a barbecue grill make this area a great place to gather. The adjoining shady grove is strung with lights that extend the party into the evening.
The Lawn will accommodate a tent for as many guests as you like and may be used in combination with the Gallery and other venues on the grounds.
The Ice House Garden has flowers and herbs that may be harvested for your use.
The Meadow may be mowed with trails to your specifications.
A walk across the Meadow leads to the West Draw and a hiking trail through woods.
Parking is ample.
There was always something fun going on at the Volland Store. The Kratzers gathered upstairs for family holidays, and Otto ordered delicacies in by train for the occasions. Neighbors came to picnic on Sunday afternoons and train conductors planned their lunch stops at Volland. Otto and Mabel fed the cowboys who were waiting for trainloads of cattle to arrive. There was always something happening.
Now it’s your turn! Our tables and chairs seat up to 80 for dining or 100 for a reception. Moving an event or part of your event outdoors provides the opportunity to host as big a party as you can imagine. Included is the use of the catering kitchen, BBQ grill, and all venues indoors and outdoors, except The Loft. The rate is $160 for a half-day or evening event. Lessee provides setup and cleanup, and there is a cleaning deposit of $100 ($200 for outdoor events). Setup and cleanup service is available.
Whether it’s a family holiday dinner, a class reunion, a birthday party, an anniversary celebration, or just a big party for no reason, email us and start planning your next party at The Volland Store. Otto would be proud.
