Stanford House exists today thanks to a generous donation from Mattie Bell Stanford.
As a 501 C 3 Organization fundraising is an ongoing responsibility and challenge for the Stanford House. Proceeds from the Quilting Group, book sales and our Gift Shop (which sells donated items), go toward daily operating expense of the Stanford House. Other activities include concerts, style shows, and luncheons.
Senior Citizens may utilize the center for anniversary celebrations, birthdays, weddings, family reunions and church functions. Local organizations are also invited to use the facility. Groups utilizing the Stanford House for meetings include AARP, Christian Women, Cooke County Retired School Personel and Elder Rights Panel.
Rooms of various sizes are available for rent, and kitchen facilities are available. Rentals are subject to availability and a deposit is required.
$50 deposit and $50 per hour with a 4 hour minimum (this is for the big room and that includes the use of the kitchen. Smaller rooms are at a cost of $15 hour with a 2 hour minimum during weekdays.
