Our History

It all began with a young married couple in the early 1930s.

One Southern Woman’s

Dream Brought to Life

The Gardens at Madeley Manor is rich in history and rooted in good fortune. It all began with a young married couple both from early pioneer families of Montgomery County, Texas that emigrated from England. Daniel Madeley was a local cattleman specializing in production and marketing and his lovely wife, Ruth Madeley was mother to four young children.

While Mrs. Madeley happily attended to her family, she made a rather forward decision for her time period. She decided to complete her education and pursue a teaching career at Sam Houston State Teacher’s College, now known as Sam Houston State University. In the midst of her studies, she was given a project to design and build a home. This assignment ended up being more than just a grade for Mrs. Madeley, it inspired the beautiful home that is now nestled in The Gardens at Madeley Manor.

As time passed, oil exploration founded the Conroe Oil Field in the early 1930s. Mr. Madeley and his brother jointly owned over 800 acres of land located right in the center of the field. As luck would have it, a blow-out well ignited in flames resulting in a generous cash settlement and provided the capital needed to bring Mrs. Madeley’s dream to life.

Continuing the Legacy of

The Madeley Family

How ironic that years later, another delightful woman would be compelled to turn this charming location into a one-of-a-kind event venue. Teamed with her husband, they hosted many special occasions and later passed the reigns to a lovely lady with a passion for delighting clients. Together with her family, they made countless reveries a reality.

The legacy continues with a new generation of caretakers who honor the robust heritage of The Gardens at Madeley Manor and uphold it as a place where special memories are made for years to come. Walk the halls, the gardens, or the grounds and experience the beauty and elegance this setting can provide for any occasion.
