Our Story

Ryan and Ashley

Dick and Elsie’s Place is named after Dick and Elsie Cole. Dick and Elsie were lifetime residents of Cabot, living most of their marriage on this property.

Their home was a welcoming home, full of family, friends, and fun. They raised two wonderful kids, teaching them to fear God, work hard, and love their family and friends.

When Dick and Elsie passed, their daughter Robin chose to take Dick’s shop and turn it into the Event Center and name it after her parents. She wanted others to experience what she experienced on the property growing up – a place full of family, friends and fun.

In 2019, Robin decided it was time to pass the Event Center on to the next generation of owners who would carry on the family traditions. She found those owners in her longtime family friend Ashley Shearer and her husband Ryan. Now Ryan and Ashley proudly continue on the Cole family traditions. Their goal for everyone who visits Dick and Elsie’s Place is to experience a wonderful time full of family, friends, and fun!
