While Old Glory Ranch serves as a premier Texas hill country wedding and event venue, there has always been concern about the footprint it might leave for future generations. Old Glory Ranch takes positive measures to help minimize its impact. Whether the hundreds of annual visitors to the ranch come in the form of a tour seeking the ideal Texas hill country venue for their event, or if they have attended a wedding or corporate gathering, the Old Glory Ranch staff sees that recycling is carried through as much as possible. The venue even offers and encourages the use of compostable dinnerware as an option for those clients who also ‘think green.’ Guests can easily find a dedicated recycling receptacle located at strategic points around the venue for glass, aluminum, and plastic. The ranch even utilizes some of the discarded food items in a compost pile for their organic garden.
It all began with the construction of Chapel Hall that was completed in September of 2000. The interior of the Chapel is built mostly of re-purposed wood, including gorgeous long leaf pine, that was gathered from three turn of the century homes that were purchased after being dismantled. For the exterior, cedar planks that were milled in the area gave Chapel Hall the perfect country church feel they were going for. The end result lends old world charm to modern day events. Stunning appointments can be found throughout the Chapel and Patio areas including beautiful turn of the century re-purposed stained glass and antique pieces that hearken of days gone by.
In March of 2010, Old Glory Ranch organized and hosted a “Gloriously Green” event providing pertinent information to its community members and leaders about the importance and ease of recycling. Area experts from various backgrounds were invited to sit on a panel for a Q&A session and to provide a presentation about their given field of expertise. Many area residents attended the event and found it very informative.
Old Glory Ranch invites you to join their efforts of leaving a better environment for future generations.
