It all began as a gift.

The structure housing 1836 was built on this site circa 1872 as a wedding gift from Dr. Joshua Allen Thomason and wife Emily Jane Fisher Thomason to their daughter Sallie and son-in-law Rev. Jeremiah Ward rector of St. Stephens Episcopal Church in Huntsville. Originally constructed in the then new and popular Italianate Country Villa style, it has evolved over the many years into the structure which invites you today.

A tribute to liberty.

This restaurant is our tribute to the men and events of that time of Texas legend and grandeur. Throughout our home you will find replicas of flags used during the revolution years. Original commissioned art by Texas artist Virgilio Davis is on display along with other tributes to Texas heroes. We do this while hoping to bring to you our patrons a pleasurable dining experience. Join us then in remembering greatness forged in self denial, valor, and a visionary dream that became Texas.
