History One Moment at a Time

Modern Times at the Neill-Cochran House Museum continues beginning with the dawn of Texas’s statehood for its 14th season. Together, we will explore the impact of slavery on our city and on Texian diplomacy, the confluence of Spanish and Anglo legal traditions, and early Austin performing arts, as well international influences on Texas.
