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. Owners and visionaries Michael and Janet Montgomery purchased the cotton gin in 1998, transforming it into the headquarters for their business, WEST Engineering Services. They teamed up with a landscape architectural company to develop an inviting setting that brings back the vintage feel of the cotton gin.

    Where to start....there are so many wonderful amazing things to say about this place and the people that run it I don’t even know where to start...let me first say that I was hooked on this place from the moment I walked in the door and saw such originality and beauty I knew I didn’t need to look any where else...we had my sons and his now wife’s rehearsal dinner here at The Cotton Gin No.116 and it was hands down the most beautiful event of any kind I’ve ever seen!!!! Working with Kim Montgomery was such a delight...she literally either had everything I needed or got what ever I needed and the entire event went perfectly smoothly without a single hitch and it was the first event for this newly rebuilt Cotton Gin!!! I honestly can’t say enough good about this place and it’s unique beauty...for us there was a special connection on top of this unique venue which is the fact that I come from a family of cotton growers and my son whose rehearsal dinner was here is in the produce business now and has his own cotton fields and pockets and ginning equipment so that was just another plus for us but the attraction to this place went way beyond that....I would reccomend this place to anyone for any occasion!!!! A big thank you to Kim Montgomery for making this special occasion for us a perfect night!!! ❤️

    One of the best kept secrets in West Houston! Every detail has so much thought and love put into it. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for an industrial chic venue that guests will always remember. There is a mini museum in the front area which the perfect cocktail hour room. Kim, the manager is so sweet and accommodating as well. Also the fact you can bring in your own vendors is awesome and it even has a small playground area so it’s great for kids too! We also really loved the landscaping- 5 stars!
