The Neill-Cochran House Museum preserves and reflects the experience of some of Austin’s earliest residents. Built in 1855 by renowned entrepreneur and builder Abner Cook, the house and the collections it displays shed light on the local, individual, and political history of our always-growing city. There is no example of Austin’s antebellum architecture more accessible and better preserved than ours.
Looking for an elegant, intimate, and flexible venue in central Austin? Just minutes from downtown, UT, and Mopac, we’re a new special event venue preserving and based out of one of the ten oldest buildings in Austin. Hosting a conference, an intimate wedding, a product launch party, or an outdoor reception? Let us help you make it unforgettable!
