History
In 1955 Washington Hill commissioned a local builder and designer, Abner Cook, to build a Greek Revival house on 18 acres of land northwest of Austin. Washington and his wife were unable to finance the rest of the build and never lived in the house. Local investors and clients of Abner owned and leased the house through the Reconstruction era. The house was home to The Texas Asylum for the Bling, Fletcher Stockdale and others through the years. The Neill family purchases the house in 1876 and furnished the house with walnut furniture and began to make a name for themselves in the community. The house was later rented out to Thomas and Bessie Cochran, a lawyer and the daughter of Williamson County’s only Presbyterian minister. In 1958 after nearly 70 years of continuous residency, the Cochran family sold the home to the National Society of the Colonial Dame of America in the state of Texas. They began preserving the historic structure and interpreting the decor and furnishing.
