Crafting Your Experience

Neill-Cochran House Museum

Neill-Cochran House Museum

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 ever changing, perpetually growing, and always dynamic city. We tell Austin's story from its founding in 1839 up to 1930 through the many people who have lived and worked at the historic site — from the first State School for the Blind, to the Lieutenant Governor during the Civil War, to Federal soldiers recuperating from yellow fever — to the Neills and Cochrans.
