One of Austin's most important historic houses, the Neill-Cochran House was built in 1855 by the Master Builder Abner Cook, who also designed the Texas Governor's Mansion, both in the Greek Revival style. The House served as the first Asylum for the Blind in Texas and was a hospital, under the command of General George Armstrong Custer, for the Union Army during Reconstruction. It was not owner-occupied until 1876 when Colonel Andew Neill purchased it for his family.
