A Little About Us...

Star Hill is a re-creation of a Texas Hill Country community typical of the early 1900s. All of the buildings have been relocated from around the state and carefully restored. Star Hill is centered around the historic Pontotoc Chapel, which has hosted hundreds of public worship services and weddings since it opened there in 2004.

Star Hill began as a childhood dream of owner/creator Adam Woolley, and was inspired by visits to the early German immigrant settlement of Industry, Texas located near Brenham.

It is the culmination of years of planning, renovating, and learning, and continues to be a repository for preservation of historic structures. In essence, it offers an opportunity to honor our heritage while creating a variety of wonderful new experiences and memories.

Adam & Matt Woolley are brothers, native Austinites and fifth generation Texans.  Adam’s is an Architectural Engineering and after about 10 years working for Exxon and Trammel-Crow, he created Star Hill Ranch.  Matt spent over 20 years in Corporate America in Operations, Sales and Marketing, before joining Adam at Star Hill in 2014.  They both love history and it shows!  Learn more about our historic buildings.
