Ross Station’s interior is trimmed with locally sourced cypress and has views of the Ross Mansion, Ross Farm, and the pecan grove. Other amenities include a caterer’s prep kitchen, video projection with HDMI connection, a building-wide sound system with PA, USB charging stations, and free Wi-Fi for your guests. Contact us to learn more!


The Governor Ross Mansion

Completed in 1860, the Governor Ross Mansion offers elegance in an intimate setting. Clients will have use of the formal Main Parlor, the Entry Hall with its graceful staircase, and the Dining Room. The home features original and period furnishings in an idyllic setting that harkens to a more elegant age. To maintain the integrity of the space, events inside the mansion are limited to 40 people. Contact us to learn more!


The Governor Ross Farm

Have your outdoor event or festival with the elegant Ross Mansion as the backdrop. Or, perhaps you prefer rustic red barns. Or, a pecan grove. The Ross Farm offers these options and more! And there is plenty of room for tents of any size on the farm’s 20 acres.

The Governor Ross Farm may be used as its own venue, or in combination with Ross Station or Ross Mansion. The Farm also provides ample parking for all of our venues, with many areas being RV-friendly. Contact us to learn more!
