All Hallows Eve (October 24) - CANCELED


UPDATED 7/16/2020

On Friday, July 10, 2020 the Governor issued Executive Order 2020-147, requiring individuals to wear a face covering over their nose and mouth when in any indoor public space, or when outdoors and unable to maintain the 6 ft. recommended social distancing. As a result, Barry County Parks & Recreation Commission must require that guests entering the Upjohn House and Museum buildings wear face coverings such as a mask or bandana, except where doing so would inhibit an individual’s health or the individual is under 5 years of age.

The Upjohn House is open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday-Friday. The historic buildings remain closed.

All shelters are available for rentals, provided gathering numbers are limited to 100 or fewer and social distancing guidelines are followed. If you are interested in making a reservation, please call the office at 269-945-3775.

Please visit or to access on-line service, obtain department contact information, and for periodic updates on the status of BCPRC operations.

Questions regarding this operational change may be directed to the BCPRC Director Dan Patton at 269-945-3775.
