Meet the Owner Kathy
Kathy Cannella bought the Chisholm Trail Rustic Venue in 2016. She earned her degree in Hospitality Management from Texas Tech University and had always dreamed of owning an Event Venue ever since she was 19 years old and finally her dream came true! Kathy absolutely LOVES what she does, and she has a real passion for helping her clients create those special memories by providing the perfect venue for them.
An Authentic Western Town with a Saloon
There is a real history to this venue like no other around which makes it even more unique. The Chisholm Trail Rustic Venue hosts an authentic Western Town with a Saloon, built over 45 years ago by a local Cowboy musician so he could perform for his family & friends. It was built using materials from historical sites in Johnson County, so it is authentic to the 1860’s. There is no place around like this!!
The Chisholm Trail Rustic Venue sits right next door to the historic Chisholm Trail Museum and is just a quick drive down the road to Lake Pat Cleburne where you boat, kayak or fish. This beautiful venue is family and pet friendly with a play area with a swing set for kids…a Saloon for the adults….and a fire pit for the entire family, but just don’t forget the firewood ……
……and of course, the S’mores!!
