Springhill Retreat Center

Springhill Retreat Center is a non-denominational recreation and meeting facility owned by PHPC. It is available for use by churches of all denominations as well as educational, business, and not-for-profit groups.

Springhill is located on the north side of Renner Road in northeast Richardson, fairly close to Wylie. It consists of 50 wooded acres reminiscent of the Texas Hill Country, complete with a limestone-lined, spring-fed creek flowing through the woods and large ponds surrounded by beautiful native trees and foliage.

3991 E. Renner Road,
Richardson, TX 75082-2501

Springhill offers two main facilities for gatherings and a chapel for worship, all of which are air-conditioned and heated.

The Mary Alice Wilcox Adult Conference Center provides the perfect setting for meetings, retreats and conferences. The Center's meeting room accommodates up to 60 people with a scenic view of the property's many ponds. A TV/VCR and overhead projector are available for use, with a serving kitchen adjacent to the meeting room. The conference center boasts 11 motel-type rooms with private baths, 2 of which are wheelchair accessible. A study for meditation with overnight facilities is also available.

The James M. Wilcox Jr. Lodge is a popular, overnight facility that has provided years of enjoyment for groups of all kinds, has a bunk capacity of 8, and plenty of room for more sleeping bags. The main hall, a rustic, 30-by 50-foot, open-beamed facility, includes an oversized wood-burning fireplace, TV/VCR, and both piano and organ for musical enjoyment. Also located in the Lodge are two restrooms, each with double showers. A warming kitchen and informal seating for 30 - 40 round out the Lodge's amenities. Indoor use of the Lodge is limited to 40 people. Picnics are limited to 60 people, although exceptions may be granted by the Board.

The James M. Wilcox III Memorial Chapel sits just north of the Lodge and is the perfect setting for intimate worship services. The Chapel seats up to 65, but informal outdoor seating can be added by opening the large side doors.
