A short 8 mile drive from downtown Fredericksburg with 8 Air-BNB rooms on site! Once the home of a U.S. Post Office and a local General Store(building dating back to the 1870’s). The property now boasts ample parking, two large rustic bars, outdoor and indoor stages, and the Bankersmith Dance Hall. We have modern bathrooms(no need to rent expensive luxury trailers) and two large suite for both the Bride and Groom to get ready. Plus 4 single bedrooms for guests!. If your getting married in Texas, and you appreciate authentic and rustic Hill country ambiance we have got you covered. Put your boots on and rent the whole town(or just the Dance Hall)!
Nestled between Luckenbach and Fredericksburg, the Ole’ Bankersmith homestead-turned-wedding venue has a totally unique style. Designed like a classic wooden barn and Texas Dance Hall, the Wedding Hall is 4,700 square feet, has bathrooms, its own bar and was lovingly built from reclaimed church wood. Bankersmith Dance Hall has an impressive and charming wrap around porch with space for hundreds of guests! You can rent the Hall or the entire Town for a day! We also have a stand alone Bar and Country General store, full service food and alcohol catering options on site(from BBQ to Farm to Table) and a Mixed Beverage Permit allowing liquor, beer and wine. What would a Texas wedding be without a little whiskey!
There is a deep Texas History here and according to an article in Texas Monthly, the “abandoned town of Bankersmith, an old rail stop…[was] once “patronized” by train robber Jesse James.” Plenty of outdoor space, there is a large outdoor patio area with lawn games and benches and open sided bar pavilion for outdoor celebrations. We have plenty of room for additional tents, but typically not needed ( a big savings for our couples) as our Wedding Hall comfortably seats 200 plus guests(400 or more when standing). There is even an old Tour Bus on site for instagrammable photo opportunities with a ‘Texas Is my Happy Place!’ mural that has been to Terralingua and back more than a few times. While the bus no longer functions, wedding shuttle services are readily available to safely shuttle guests to and from Fredericksburg, TX.
The home of the Fredericksburg Cowboy Church, our little town even has a Official Bankersmith Pastor to marry our happy couples on site, if needed. We are a relatively convenient drive or Uber from major airports in San Antonio and Austin, as well as a private airport located right here in Fredericksburg, TX! There is also a small farm on the property that operates and is loved by children and adults alike! The charming landscape holds over 1,000 people for larger events as well. Be sure to wander around the property for some fabulous photo ops – and don’t forget to pay a visit to our baby Pygmy Goats or Stella, Judy and Wallace, the farms darling miniature-breed donkeys.
Stop by or shoot us an email and take the first step in creating a Texas sized memory that will last a lifetime!
