About

Up to 200 guests

Built-in 1925, in the grand architectural style of Beaux-Arts Classical Revival, the Simon Theatre provided a splendid setting for many theatrical performances, film screenings and ballroom dances. The James Simon family commissioned Houston architect Alfred C. Finn, whose career included designing a number of prominent Houston buildings as well as the San Jacinto Monument, to design the theatre for the community of Brenham. Today, after a meticulous million-plus dollar renovation, the glamour and grand style lives on for future generations in the newly named Barnhill Center at Historic Simon Theatre. You will feel the charm of the old and appreciate the convenience of all the modern updates. Truly — The Best of Both Worlds!

    The Bullock Ballroom is absolutely gorgeous, and made my daughters dream wedding come true!

    The Barnhill Center is absolutely beautiful. Every aspect of the center is well thoughtout and stunning. We held my daughters wedding in the Bullock Ballroom upstairs and it was a dream come true for her. Absolutely Beautiful. Alexandra and Hannah were so wonderful to work with, they are the best!

    Historic Barnhill Center

    The Barnhill Center was a perfect place for our large rehearsal dinner. Alex was fantastic at helping us work through all of the details from early planning to set up to clean up. This venue is a gem in the center of a beautiful, welcoming, small Texas town!

    Loved having our event at the Barnhill!

    We adored working with Alex at the Barnhill Center. She was so accommodating and the venue was perfect. We used the beautiful Bullock ballroom for our rehearsal dinner, and it was great for our guests, and easy for the caterer. The sunset views from the second floor looking over historic downtown were picturesque. Would love to host something there again.
