The house that Wash and Mary Hill commissioned 160 years ago has distinctive entertaining in its bones. We’re one of the very few antebellum venues in Austin for weddings, receptions, meetings, workshops, formal dinners, and other special events, and we’re proud of the historic, high-society charm that we bring to your events. Visit our event gallery to get an idea of what we have to offer.

Make It Easy

Within minutes of the University of Texas campus, Downtown Austin, and MoPac, complimentary furnishings and linens for events up to 85 guests, and onsite parking available for 40 vehicles, we offer guests and hosts alike unmatched convenience as a historic and centrally located venue.

Antebellum Luxury

Design your day around a contemporary, urban take on timeless style. As an indoor venue for intimate weddings up to 50 or an outdoor venue for larger receptions and ceremonies up to 200, no other location in Austin can offer the same depth and historical charm.

Non-profit? So Are we!

We especially welcome student, philanthropic, performing arts, and non-profit organizations to host with us – be sure to mention your organization’s mission and tax-exempt status when you contact us with questions or to schedule an appointment to tour the house and grounds.

Recommended Vendors Make Everything Right

Looking for the right professionals to partner with to make an impression on your guests? We’ve vetted and especially recommend our recommended vendors for catering, rental, photography, and more! Have someone you trust already? We’re glad to work with the vendor of your choice – just let us know about your preferences and we’ll take it from there!

The Perfect Tone For Your Next Meeting

Invite participants for board retreats, professional seminars, working groups, and conferences to take a step away from the rush of the working world to collaborate in an elegant and contemplative environment. Need to get them away from the fluorescent lights and parking garages? That’s our specialty.
