Commemorate Juneteenth 2024 at the Neill-Cochran House Museum! We are excited to share the newly-restored Slave Quarters, the only intact and accessible slave dwelling left in Austin, with you, our community.

While you are on site, take a tour of the Slave Quarters, lift your voice with gospel choir Christopher D. Spivey & Co., and be among the first to see, “A Juneteenth Rodeo,” a collection of photographs by Sarah Bird taken in the late 1970s in the jubilant, vibrant, vital, and now all-but vanished world of small-town Black rodeos.

Lunch will be served from noon until we run out. The opening reception for “A Juneteenth Rodeo” begins at 3:00pm and includes complimentary cocktails from Milam & Greene Whiskey!
