The Brazos Valley’s newest wedding venue might also be its oldest. Built in the late 1800’s, the historic P.A. Smith Hotel transports guests to another time – one filled with old world glamour, elegance, and intrigue. Just 25 minutes south of Bryan/College Station, the completely restored Old English Style boutique hotel is located in the historic Railroad District of Navasota, Texas. Outfitted with ornate chandeliers, vintage paintings, and Art-Deco embellishments, the P.A. Smith Hotel allows modern brides to revisit the extravagance of the 1800s – over a hundred and fifty years later.
