Steeped in the History of Dallas
Beginning as a bridal gift in the early 1900’s, the history of Aldredge House commences with a true love story.
Construction of the house began in 1915 when prominent rancher/banker William J. Lewis secured architect Hal Thomas to build a Southern mansion for William’s 20-year-old bride, Willie Newbury Lewis. Miss Willie was one of Dallas’ first debutantes.
Today, this tradition of romance and elegance continues as people from all over the country make Aldredge House a part of their own personal history. From summer morning weddings on the terrace to spring and fall ceremonies in the garden to the sparkle of a holiday celebration, this grand dame of Swiss Avenue provides a lovely setting for weddings and receptions throughout the year.
We will work with you to create a menu befitting of your special occasion. A complete selection of silverware, china, glassware, tables, and chairs are available for your use. There is also baby grand piano or an interior sound system that utilizes tapes or CD's.
