Meet the Tritico Family

After years of looking into the wedding venue business, Chris and Debbie purchased the property in 2021 when the opportunity fell into their lap.

The couple has their own unique experience with weddings, married two days after Hurricane Alicia in 1983.
If they can get married, quite literally, in the middle of a storm, they have what it takes to gracefully handle any obstacle you may face throughout the planning process.

Combined with all their talents and expertise, the Tritico family provides everything you’ll need for a wonderful upscale wedding at The Grand Texana.

. . . when its first owner, James Hall, received a land grant from Mexico through Stephen F. Austin. The property remained in the hands of the Hall family all the way through 1926.

Francis J. Cooke shortly after entered the scene during the Texas Revolution, and his heirs owned the farmstead for an additional 90 years until his son sold it to Wyatt C. Hedrick.

At the time, Hedrick was a nationally recognized architect. His work involved the creation of universities, banks, courthouses, and other public buildings that still exist to this date.

One of Hedrick’s well-known buildings is the Texas Tech Dairy Barn at Texas Tech University, built in 1926 — now recognized as a national historic landmark. The very last dairy barn he built now lives on our land today.

The authentic white, wooden dairy barn, with its Dutch colonial gambrel roof, has become a staple of The Grand Texana.

Steeped with rich Texas history

The Grand Texana’s beginnings date back to 1823 …

And this same barn, along with our other vintage architecture,
 transports our guests back into history for a one-of-a-kind farmstead experience.
