The Foundry is a purpose-built venue that combines a modern industrial space with its natural, undisturbed backdrop. This unlikely combination brings about a unique atmosphere appealing to those seeking a stunning event space at an affordable price point. The various package options provide clients with alternatives that may better suit their event, their need, or their budget.

The indoor space was designed to create an intimate atmosphere that supports a gathering of family and friends, while the outdoor area offers an unobstructed view of the natural surroundings.

A Southeast Texas Event Venue that is both distinctively different and noticeably familiar.

We will relentlessly pursue Christ first and promise to love each other and others well. Entitled to nothing, we will work hard to earn all things. We will show respect, kindness, and grace as we serve the Lord and others. We are people of unwavering faith and substantial integrity.

Built on family values, The Foundry promises a personal connection, a desire to deliver exceptional service, and a quality experience to all who we are blessed to encounter.

Family Mission Statement

Our blended and blessed family has resided in Kountze since 2012. While both Jim and I have experienced successful careers for over 20 years, we began to have the desire to build something of our own that would set about a legacy for our family. Our “something” turned out to be a wedding and event venue.

In 2020, we purchased the land where the venue would be built…and then the pandemic happened. Our dream, along with many hours of design work, were placed on hold. When 2021 arrived, changes in the events industry gave us a new perspective on our original plan and sent us back to the design process. 2022 was the year we began to see our dream take shape and take off!

Foundation for what is now known as The Foundry, was poured on September 15, 2022.

HELLO, WE'RE Jim & kim mcneely!
