Historic Site

Once upon a time…

One hundred years ago, a congregation in the small town of Aledo christened the simple building that would become their church home. Today, as if still blessed by the love that built it, The Parson’s Table celebrates life’s joys: weddings, anniversaries, and parties.

In 1906, the year The Parson’s Table was built, tiny Aledo, Texas, was a youngster of a Western town. Born in 1879 as a whistle stop along the Texas & Pacific Railroad line, the settlement was home to hardy pioneers drawn to the rustic beauty of the Clear Fork Valley of the Trinity River.

Through the years, as Aledo grew, the charming country church was home to the Aledo Christian Church, the Aledo Church of Christ, an antique store and a family. In the 1940s, the latter church added offices, and in the 1950s, a classroom wing. Both remain today and adjoin the original two-room structure, the sanctuary and bell tower.

Today, Aledo is renowned for its exemplary schools and family-centered lifestyle. A small town, it retains its 19th century appeal. Wooden sidewalks and native stone buildings line Front Street , home to delightful shops and restaurants popular with cityfolk and residents alike. The train whistle still wails, as Union Pacific trains whisk down the rails that run through the center of town.

In 2002, The Pearson family purchased the old church and hired John Sharp of Colonial Homes of Fort Worth to oversee a loving restoration of the landmark structure. Quietly, for a wedding on May 17, 2003, Susan and Aaron Pearson opened The Parson’s Table, a reception and catering site that exudes the incomparable charm of small-town Texas.

Plans are underway to include The Parson’s Table in the National Historical Registry.
