Neill-Cochran House Museum




Over 150 years ago, the master builder Abner Cook was commissioned to build the notable Greek revival home, now known as the Neil Cochran House Museum. Featuring stunning architectural craftsmanship, private historic rooms, a lush garden, and a charming balcony, the house is all yours on your big day. Pose against regal columns on the balcony or on the grand staircase for a truly memorable experience in one of Austin’s oldest and most architecturally significant structures. For a stunning ceremony, make your way across either the front or side lawn with the breathtaking house as your backdrop. The beautiful outdoors are also a perfect location for cocktail tables and benches or a white tent to dine and dance under with your friends and family. The intimate parlor is ideal for small gatherings or a stop along the way to the reception for hors d’oeuvres or drinks. No matter which way you choose to customize your wedding day, the Neill Cochran House Museum is a beautiful spot to celebrate your special occasion.
