Whatever your meeting or party needs, you are sure to find building space or open air ground at Ushers Ferry that will work for you.

Look no further than the grounds at Ushers Ferry! Located on 10 beautiful acres in Seminole Valley, this is the place for bringing people together.

Are you searching for something new and different to do with your scout troop, youth or church group, community organization, or just an outing with family and friends? Then join us at Ushers Ferry for a bonfire, and then enjoy a hayrack ride pulled by tractors around the Village.

We are a design and fabrication shop that encourages play in museums, organizations and brands so they may spread the roots of their mission. Play is a powerful tool because it tests assumptions, makes connections and establishes a positive emotional memory to concepts. Incorporating play (interactives) in your project can actually boost diversity, loyalty and engagement which will ultimately strengthen your mission.
