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.

    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

    Magic Wedding!

    1 month ago we got married at Cotton Gin No. 116, the most romantic, historic and magical venue. There was nothing normal about our day, everything was exquisite. There is something extraordinary about planning a dream, and executing a vision and we will be forever grateful to the them for making that happen for us. Every tiny little detail we wanted, they wholeheartedly did for us. Not only is it an outstanding location, Kim and Helen are really wonderful humans. Each one of our guests felt so welcome, and we all just felt true love and happiness that day as we celebrated our highly anticipated marriage. Our ceremony was crafted for us and felt so authentic, and our reception was the best dance party we could ever ask for! The food was absolutely delicious and we felt welcome every step of the way. Helen made sure all the many details for our tables and decoration looked as we wanted, and all of our flowers were beautiful! and deliciously wild- like us. All our guests were complimenting the unique venue and its broad history, and we left in total bliss that night. A simple thank you will never be enough: Cotton Gin No. 116, we
