[TEMP. CLOSED] Neill-Cochran House: Reckoning With the Past

Museum is closed at least through the end of March due to COVID-19. This exhibition is one example of a movement in contemporary Austin to begin to understand not only with the city’s history of enslavement, but the ways in which race and equity have played a significant role throughout Austin history. Only in recent years have the team at the Neill-Cochran House Museum realized that they are stewards of the only slave quarters structure still standing in Austin. "We have the opportunity and the obligation to the men and women who built this site," the House's website notes, "and whose labor made possible the function of the home and surrounding property through the end of the antebellum period and into the 20th century, to share their stories."
