Historic Stone Mansion 

Located only minutes from the heart of downtown Fort Worth. This quaint piece of history sits just off of Highway 199, nestled in the back of the property surrounded by trees, for that "Hidden Gardens" feel.


This beautiful Venue was built in 1932. Prior to it being a venue, it was a home to many, a hunting lodge and a Russian Spy Camp.

After years of neglect, lots of hard work and elbow grease, the beauty of this stone building was able to shine through once again.


We hope that you come to love its charm just as much as we do!

We had our wedding on 3/23/22 and it was amazing! I'm a simple bride, didn't ask for much but Hidden Gardens went above and beyond to make sure we had a beautiful wedding.

This is an amazing venue that totally worked with us to make our reception wonderful & complete! Love all the antiques & the history, as well as the beautiful grounds & lighting. The owner Shelley was fantastic to work with & she really went above & beyond providing great communication & customer service. We can't thank them enough!

Several people have already said it, but let me assure you, Shelly is amazing! Her venue is perfect for big and small weddings. My husband and I got married November 2022 and it was perfect. Hidden Gardens was exactly what we were looking for! We had gone to see several other venues before checking out Hidden Gardens, and as we drove to see Shelly and her beautiful venue we actually talked about eloping instead. As soon as we pulled up, everything changed!
