The Compound

The Compound is a 57-acre special event center located two miles south of Round Top’s historic town square. Conceived and built by locally connected developer, Mark Massey the project has been designed as a multi-purpose center to host myriad events such as

exhibitions, weddings, music events, conferences and more. Each facility, by appearance and design, feels indigenous to the landscape that surrounds it with barn-like construction features. To be surrounded by lush gardens, pathways, fountains and gazebos, the park-like setting connects each building

to the other while delivering an overall atmosphere unlike anything else to be found in Fayette County. In the future, the Compound masterplan calls for additional venues that will host an even broader array of events both intimate and large.

The Stables

The first, 9600 sq. ft. first phase of The Stables building is reminiscent in architectural style to a European equestrian center. The facility features concrete floors, soaring 21’ ceilings (31’ in the grand lobby), decorative chandeliers, fans and WiFi. The development plan for this building includes the expansion of the building to nearly double its size, and the addition of large restroom facilities which will be centrally located and adjacent to the grand lobby.



The Grove is a delightful outdoor space connecting the Neal Barn with The Stables building and Peck Barn. It features a large concrete (40x40) deck, a large covered stage, and bistro lighting illuminating the beautiful oak trees that grace the area. It is a perfect place for dining or dancing. Sturdy picnic tables with expansive umbrellas can be used (or not). The area has power and water, so it is ideal for the set up of both bands and food trailers. The lovely live oak trees, seasonal landscaping, pathways and a sparkling fountain add to the ambiance have made it a favorite spot for and during events large and small. The Grove may be rented separately for day or evening events.
