  • Beautiful facilities. Large chandeliers in the dining area, and building looks to be practically newly updated. Definitely a place where you could have a nice wedding reception
  • Great place to learn about and experience Harlingen history. Today 06/22/19 they had a mosaic butterfly making class for children, an art exhibit, a historical calendar exhibit, and the original restored hospital, and others are great. Take your children, it's amazing how much has changed in only 100 years.
