The place(BALL-EDDLEMAN-MCFARLAND HOUSE) is stunning and the staff very helpful and polite. Its was just stunning and glad my money went to the Historic Fort Worth Fund to help keep places like this in the world.

Thistle Hill is the perfect place to have your wedding ceremony & reception. The house is absolutely beautiful and the employees are great to work with! When my husband and I first got engaged I knew immediately that I wanted my ceremony & reception at Thistle Hill because of the atmosphere and backdrop it creates.

Fantastic venue! All the staff were really nice. We were able to bring in our own catering. We did a butterfly release when we were leaving since there are restrictions on rice and bubbles. All the pictures look beautiful because the venue is such a wonderful place.
