Wood Fired Pizza, Fresh Roasted Coffee, & Unique Events

New Project (1).png

As the newest addition to the Ironwood brand, The Yard is owner John Freightenburgh’s newest dream brought to life. Located at 604 E Seneca St in Manlius NY, The Yard combines country and industrial aesthetics with small town charm, to create an event space like you’ve never experienced. Our unexpected, quirky and always evolving venue is open for your private events, as well as some of our own monthly summer events!

John first saw the potential in this historic property in 2013, and has worked tirelessly since to breathe new life into it. The Yard sits on 4 acres that were originally home to the Hale Lumber Yard, dating back to the 1800’s. More recently, the Hollowick Candle company operated here. A forgotten piece of Manlius’ history, what we now call The Yard had been left to sag and crumble for decades, and barely escaped demolition on multiple occasions. What most would have seen as a lost cause is now ready to welcome visitors from all over the region. Come join us!
