HISTORICAL WEDDING VENUES

BELO MANSION

The Belo Mansion is designed in the neo-classical revival style and was built in the late 1800s by A.H. Belo. Belo was the founder of the Dallas Morning News and built this mansion as a tribute to his wife, Nettie. 

In 1977, the Dallas Bar Association decided to buy and restore this property. In 2003, they added the gorgeous Pavilion, linking the historical past of this building to the innovative design of the future.

OLD RED MUSEUM

The Old Red Museum, commonly known as Old Red, is dedicated to the education of its visitors about the rich and varied cultural, economic, political, and social history of the Dallas County Area. Old Red was built in 1982 and has been restored throughout the years. 

The Old Red Museum can serve as a historical backdrop to your event and their staff can help you create the wedding of your dreams.

THE MASON

The Oak Cliff Masonic Lodge #705 was built in 1920 and was designed by a prominent Dallas architect, Herbert M. Greene. Greene also designed the Belo Mansion and the Dallas National Bank building. 

About 100 years later, The Mason has been thoughtfully reimagined into a special event venue. The rich details and variety of textures allow you to experience intimacy and splendor in one beautiful venue.

THE FILTER BUILDING

White Rock Lake construction began in 1910 when Dallas was experiencing water shortages. Throughout the next 40 years, the Filter Building was updated to keep the water flow safe and healthy. The White Rock Lake water was used by Dallas for many years until the construction of other lakes in the 1950s replaced White Rock and its aging equipment. In 2003, the historic but abandoned waterworks were leased from Dallas Water Utilities and the Filter BUilding was restored and renovated into an event venue. This venue’s revenue supports the White Rock Boathour outreach rowing programs such as community outreach, juniors rowing, and adaptive rowing for the disabled, including veterans.

The Filter Building is an ideal wedding location for families and friends to gather to celebrate love. The grand main hall of the Filter Building features historic exposed red brick from the original building from the 1920s.

ALEXANDER MANSION

Alexander Mansion, owned by The Dallas Woman’s Forum has been a longtime favorite of Dallas residents for weddings and receptions. 

This stately mansion is one of the very few architecturally authentic buildings remaining in Dallas. The Alexander Mansion was originally built in 1904 by Charles H. Alexander. This building is full of English-inspired architecture with a neoclassical influence.
