Affectionately known as “Old Red”, this 1892 Romanesque courthouse served as the center of Dallas County life and government. Within its sandstone and granite walls, meetings were conducted, marriages performed and justice was served.
The doors to Old Red are once again open to offer this one of a kind location as the perfect setting for your wedding, reception or rehearsal dinner.
The grand architecture of the Old Red Museum is sure to make a great impression. From the moment your guests arrive they will take pleasure in this unique and historic building. Grand entryways made of marble and stone along with the soaring four-story staircase welcomes the bride and groom’s friends and family and is the perfect setting for tossing the bouquet.
