French Legation Museum


Much of the reason why the museum is so well preserved today is owed to the work of renowned preservation architect Raiford Stripling. In the 1950s, Stripling was hired by the Daughters of the Republic of Texas to oversee the ongoing historic restoration of the Legation structure and planning for the historic site and its outbuildings. As the oldest existing home in Austin, the Legation and the Museum possess a unique and important history for Austin and Texas.
