Built in 1855, the Neill-Cochran House sits on just under one of its original 17 ½ acres, shaded now by pecan and oak trees. One of the very few antebellum buildings open to the public in Austin, NCHM represents nearly untouched Greek Revival architecture.
NCHM staff oversees the material maintenance of the structure and finishes of the house and uses historical resources to shine light on aspects of the city’s past. The collection of period furniture and decorative arts is complemented by temporary exhibitions of art in various media.
NCHM is open to visitors Wednesday through Sunday from 1pm to 4pm. Guided tours are offered by prior appointment.
