The Giddings Stone Mansion has eleven rooms, five bathrooms, and broad verandas that surround most of the house–both upstairs and downstairs.

An intricately carved mahogany staircase graces the elegant central hallway, providing the perfect stage for speeches and bridal entrances.

Use a single room for a small, intimate gathering. Use two or more adjoining rooms for larger groups or open the entire Mansion for a grand celebration!

Indoor spaces can accommodate up to 165 guests for a seated dinner or up to 200 guests for a buffet.

The rooms are bright and spacious with 13-foot ceilings, elaborate woodwork and original fireplaces.

The mansion’s spacious covered verandas provide spectacular outdoor areas for afternoon teas, informal luncheons and romantic dinners. Open the leaded glass doors for an elegant ceremony on the front veranda or lawn.

Use a tent for an outdoor venue to expand the seating capacity of the mansion.


The Giddings Stone Mansion is located at 2203 Century Circle, Brenham, Texas, on the corner of Market Street and Stone Street. The city of Brenham is located in the heart of lush bluebonnet country, halfway between Houston and Austin on Highway 290.
