Since opening its doors in 1931, the TFWC Mansion has been a favorite central Austin wedding venue. The historic building is majestic and elegant; perfect for charming your guests and making your event a success. In addition to wedding ceremonies and receptions, the Mansion has hosted banquets, charity balls, concerts, and dances. It was designed for celebrations, and you can feel it the moment you step inside. The Mansion is a Texas Historic Landmark, an Austin Historic Landmark and is listed with the National Register of Historic places. It was designed by noted Dallas architect Henry Coke Knight to be the state headquarters for the Texas Federation of Women's Clubs and is considered to be one of the best examples of Georgian Revival architecture in Texas. It was completed in 1931 with assistance from noted philanthropist, Clara Driscoll, whose Austin residence was Laguna Gloria, current home of the Austin Museum of Art.
