About Us

The Cotton Exchange is a wedding and event venue in Waterford, Wisconsin. The property was built in 1881 by the Kempken family. The original barn was the most modern styling for its day but was destroyed by a fire. The barn was rebuilt with hand-hewn wooden beams and existing flagstone.

  • We got married at the Cotton Exchange about 2 weeks ago and it was awesome! We had the best experience working with them and event coordinator Jenna. She was so responsive to our questions and we were able to come in multiple times before the wedding and sort out details. We thought the packages they offered were of great value. Everyone raved about the food and how great the staff was. Jenna and the staff made sure to keep everything on time during our wedding and they were awesome with handling set up and tear down. Couldn't recommend them enough!! We also loved having a classy ceremony/reception feel but getting pictures of the barn aesthetic outside. It was just the perfect balance of everything and they went above and beyond to make sure all the little details were just right.
