Rustic Reception or Barn Wedding
The Texas Tumbleweed Barn was built in 1927 as an oil field supply store. In the early 1930s, it was purchased by Joe Clayton and used as a feed store for many years. The barn was located next to the railroad depot in Bryson, and often hosted local events such as rodeos. In addition, it was the holding station for the cattle who were picked up by the railroad on the last stop before the Fort Worth Stock Yards. In May of 2017, Randy Martin with Texas Flip and Move physically moved the barn 1.4 miles to it's current location. The barn is now climate controlled and has a 3000 square foot covered patio attached. It sits on top of a hill on 500 acres with a pond at the foot of the hill. The lights in the barn yard come on at dusk, and it is gorgeous!
Many options are available such as horse drawn carriages, a chuck wagon, an ice cream wagon, bounce house with a sitter and much more! Contact Susan to schedule a tour!
