  • A tiny ancient house that once was a political legation back when Texas was a country un to itself. In the era od Mirebeau B. Lamar and Sam houston. Not very inspiring but worth a look  more »

  • I paid my $5 and was really treated to a great tour of this gem of state history featuring the only surviving building in Austin from the period of the Republic of Texas. As the tour was ending, the tour guide said the place would soon be closed for a long time - perhaps more than a year - as the state government takes over management and makes it into a much more impressive site.
  • I sorely wished the hosts were more enthusiastic and gave more knowledge about the history of the house and the time period. We got a ten minute tour that really could have been done with a good pamphlet. Worth the 5 dollars if you literally need to kill time. Also the tours start at the top of the hour so even though the tour only takes 10 minutes you will have to wait. Overall I give it an "okay" rating. What a waste because this was an important time period in Texas History that is wasted without a good/knowledgeable/enthusiastic tour guide.
  • I dont get it
  • good art museum
  • Lovely grounds. Went for oysterfest and had a blast!
