Who We Are

Parchment Valley Conference Center is situated on over 1200 acres of prime Ohio Valley farmland. At the time it was purchased in 1965, this was the Hyre Dairy Farm of which our administration and dining facility (The William G. Farmar Administration Building) is the only remaining structure. The conference facility was designed with you and your group in mind, whether it be children, youth or adults, with the intention of being accessible, available, and affordable the year round.

Our cabins were designed for use by children and youth while our lodges were originally designed to accommodate the needs of adults and recently renovated to reflect the expectations of today's adult. The Greenlee Activities Center provides meeting and activity space for children and youth groups, while the Santrock Education Center provides adult meeting space featuring some of the latest technologies. Hill Hall is available for large group settings.

In addition to our meeting and overnight facilities, our conference center offers:

  • Approximately 7 miles of hiking/mountain biking trails
  • Outdoor Swimming Pool
