About Us

About Us

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.

Venue

Venue

It’s no secret that the Neill-Cochran House has a long history of being a mainstay on Austin’s social scene. Andrew and Jennie Neill’s Open Houses and Hops were once front page news in the 1870’s. Looking for a distinctive and dazzling event venue just minutes from downtown, UT, and Mopac? Let us help!
