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.

    The most beautiful day of our lives!

    My wife and I had our wedding at this amazing venue and absolutely loved the outdoor and indoor combination. The venue coordinators were very kind to us and attentive to our needs throughout our planning. They offer the choice of having a DIY wedding, which was perfect for us. An overall beautiful place to host a wedding or any other big event.

    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!
