Galveston Venue For Rent

Rent Moody Mansion for Private Events

Moody Mansion has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the U.S. Department of the Interior since 1994 and a Recorded Texas Historical Landmark since 1967.

The home is available for rent for events like weddings, reunions, anniversaries, and meetings. The formal ballroom is a memorable venue, and less formal space is available outside in the garage area, with easy access to free parking. There is ample room outside for tables and tents, and the mansion is a popular setting for bridal photos.

The 1895 Moody Mansion is the restored home of Libbie and W.L. Moody, Jr., whose family lived in the mansion from 1900 to 1983. It is filled with Moody family furnishings and memorabilia.

Rental options include:

  • You may rent the Mansion’s first floor for evening functions for up to 125 guests for a stand-up reception, or approximately 70-75 people seated at round tables or theater-style. You may engage a caterer or provide your own food and beverages.
  • The ballroom is available for rent during the daytime. Capacity for a seated meal in the ballroom is approximately 60 people, or approximately 70-75 guests for a stand-up reception or seated theater-style.
