THE GRAND LADY A Historic Home
Once a Wedding Gift, Always a Wedding Gift.
Imbued with a rich history, The Grand Lady was originally built in Bartlett, Tx as a wedding gift for Mrs. Walton in 1881. For this gift, no expense was spared, and the evidence of that lies in the ornate details throughout the home. In 1911, to celebrate the birth of their first son, the family redesigned the Victorian-style home to its current Colonial style. They added more space, a second floor, and two wraparound porches while keeping touches of the original in the ornamental woodwork and stained glass windows. In the 70’s the house was moved to the land it sits today. Nestled on 20 picturesque acres just 14 miles east of Austin, this historic mansion boasts exquisite handcrafted stained glass windows and custom milled details, creating the perfect backdrop for your special day.
These rich details have been maintained throughout the past century, and in 2019 we embarked on restoring this historic property to its original glory. Over the past three years, we have lovingly restored this historic mansion, added to its charm and are proud to now welcome modern couples to celebrate their special day within its enchanting walls.
Celebrate at one of the premier wedding venues in Austin, Texas. It’s your chance to add to her rich history.
