Our guided tour of the Neill-Cochran is June 30
AGS lifetime member Mary Bohls — who grew up in the Neill-Cochran House — will take charge of a guided tour of the house from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 30.
The architecturally and historically rich house is now the Neill Cochran House Museum, owned and managed since 1958 by the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America. The house was opened as a museum in 1962. The NSCDA owns another 40 historically important homes across the U.S.
Commissioned in 1855, the house offers a 100-year intimate view of the styles and arts of growing Austin. It is located at 2310 San Gabriel St. Austin, TX 78705.
There is a small charge of $5 per person at the door, which goes to maintaining the house. Registration is limited to 15; you must be registered to attend.
