  • The opening line to Ransom of Red Chief, one of O 'Henry's great stories. And the author's house is a great little stop. Takes as short or as long as you want. The docent, Graham, is very, very, very ...  more »

  • Quite small house, but the docent was knowledgeable and interesting. She told us about O Henry's life before writing. There were reproductions of his periodical The Rolling Stone. I had never heard of...  more »

  • I loved reading O Henry in school, so I was so pleasantly surprised to learn that he had resided in Austin when I moved here. I attended this year’s 40th O Henry Pun Off and it was so much fun! But, the highlight was being able to tour O Henry’s house and learn a little bit more about his personal history. The house tour is free and they have a lot of original items, including some of O Henry’s personal effects. If you are a tourist, native Austinite, or just a nerd like myself, I highly recommend stopping in and checking out this historic house as well as next year’s pun off!
  • Great little museum! Glad I found it - historical goodness!
  • Henry is a wonderful guy! :) He is a golden boy!!
  • Small free house-museum where has lived O'Henry few years of his life. You can make a donation if you want.
  • Quaint and old.

Where to stay in Austin

Austin bills itself as the "Live Music Capital of the World," so it shouldn't come as a surprise that many of its hotels sell out long before the city's popular festivals. If you wish to stay near downtown's live music scene, look for package deals and book your accommodations well in advance. If downtown clubs and bars aren't your priority, consider hotels located just outside the central part of town, in comfortable areas where you won't need a car to get to most of the city's major cultural sites.
