History One Moment at a Time

Modern Times at the Neill-Cochran House Museum returns to the beginnings of Austin and Texas for its 13th season. Together, we will explore the lively and diverse cultural, economic, and political forces that gathered in the years leading up to the creation of the Republic of Texas and the unlikely founding of Austin as its capital city.
