This 80-year-old cotton gin was originally known as Donigan’s Gin, bearing a special place in the hearts of many locals. The 1930's registry of Texas Gins and Ginners categorized all the gins throughout the country, giving this one the unique identifier of 116. Originally purchased in 1998 as headquarters for an engineering services company, the venue underwent a complete renovation in 2013 with local contractors to develop an inviting setting for all events.
