The Cotton Palace's History

original-houseWhat started out as a change of life business venture has resulted in an renewed awareness of the uniqueness of my hometown. As a lifelong resident of Waco, Texas.

We didn't know exactly know what we were looking for - we just knew we would know it when we saw it. And sure enough there it was at 1910 Austin Avenue. A house I had been in many times and had always loved had a For Sale sign in front of it. We realized immediately that this was what we had been looking for.

Testimonials

  • "For all of my traveling I never had a chance to stay in a B & B. One of my staff at TSTC in Harlingen told me to stay here. I have always loved old homes yet never stayed in one. This house is perfectly decorated, the food so beautifully served, the lighting right out of a Hallmark movie that I cannot stop praising God for giving me 3 nights here! I don't know where God will lead me next, but this trip I will always cherish!"
