The Brookshire Gardens Story

A Gold Country Tradition that will Delight You and Your Guests

Brookshire Gardens was built in 1852, just two years after the town of El Dorado was established. The house and barn were originally part of an eighty-two acre cattle ranch. The barn housed the ranch’s blacksmith shop. The land has since been divided and the house and barn remain on two acres.

The house has survived two major fires. The first in 1923 burned down all but a few structures in the town. The second fire in 2004 was caused by a defective wood stove.

Brookshire Gardens has been hosting weddings and events since the early 1990’s. We enjoy sharing the grounds and are committed to helping you create a lasting memory. We look forward to an opportunity to make your dreams come true.
