History

This 80-year-old cotton gin was originally known as Donigan’s Gin, bearing a special place in the hearts of many locals. The 1930's registry of Texas Gins and Ginners categorized all the gins throughout the country, giving this one the unique identifier of 116. Originally purchased in 1998 as headquarters for an engineering services company, the venue underwent a complete renovation in 2013 with local contractors to develop an inviting setting for all events.

    Great to Work With

    I am the founder/lead planner of Ashley Rachelle Events and had the pleasure of working with Melissa & Marlene at Cotton Gin No. 116 this past weekend for my client's wedding. These ladies are fabulous to work with, always available when I had questions, and we're extremely helpful day-of. The venue is historic and super cute, and I highly recommend the Cotton Gin! I can't wait for the opportunity to work with them again!

    Excellent, Highly Reccomended

    The experience at Cotton Gin 116 was wonderful, they answered all of our questions (which we had a lot of) and were extremely accommodating to our desires. The interior design and work that went into restoring the Cotton Gin is astounding. The venue just opened and I highly recommend checking them out!

    Excellent Venue!

    It has been 2 months since we got married at the Cotton Gin No. 116 and we are still amazed by how perfect our wedding was. Helen and her team went over and beyond for our rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony and reception. Cole and I fell in love with this venue the moment we walked into the Cotton Gin. Helen is very professional, has an eye for detail and wants to give you the wedding of your dreams. Helen was there every step of the way. Our rehearsal dinner was fiesta themed and amazing! The food... was absolutely delicious! We could not have asked for a more beautiful day for our wedding. The outdoor ceremony was perfect and everything we wanted. Our friends and family were raving about the venue, decoration and food for days! The price for the package is unbelievable and includes so much. I highly recommend The Cotton Gin No. 116 and you will not regret having your special day at this beautiful venue! Helen and the Cotton Gin hold a very special place in our heart.

    -Cole & Shelby
