Venues and Photography

Cy-Hope now has two venues available for leasing for your special event - the Cypress Alamo and Hope Lodge!

The Cypress Alamo's facade is an exact replica of the facade of the Alamo in San Antonio, with plenty of room inside - dinner for up to 150 seated guests.

Hope Lodge is an actual log cabin for casual events. It can seat up to 90 guests and has an adjoining patio with additional seating.

Both venues offer lots of outdoor space, great photo opportunities, and free parking. Email to inquire about touring or leasing our venues.

If you would like to use our beautiful grounds for a photography session other than Homecoming or Prom, please do the following:
