Welcome and Background

This is what our building looked like when we purchased it. It can only go uphill!

We’re really excited about what we can do with the building we just bought. It was a church here in Cameron, Texas for many years, but membership was declining as building maintenance costs rose. The congregation decided to meet elsewhere, but had to sell the building first.

It took a team with a vision to take over the property, so it remained for sale for a long time, until Hermits’ Rest Enterprises decided to purchase it. Our reasons were two fold:

Our previous office location, before we moved in a couple of years ago.

We wanted a commercial building for our offices, so we could make the house we were currently using available for a family with a small business that could use the attached warehouse.

We were looking for a way to bring more visitors to the downtown area of Cameron, and we could see the potential of the building to host medium size meetings, concerts, conferences, weddings, and other celebrations.

Most wedding/conference venues in the area are in ranch settings, so we hope we will be able to offer a more traditional spot for people who don’t have a church or building of their own to use, in a neutral setting that can work for multiple styles.

Prior to setting up this website, we chronicled our purchase, with lots of pictures and stories, on the Church Conversion page of our Hermit Haus Redevelopment site.
