More About Hotels near Henry Hirshfeld House and Cottage...

Awash with History

History buffs will appreciate the Victorian exterior, which includes stained glass, ornate woodwork, and a double gallery. A two-story carriage house was added soon after the main house was built. The buildings, which were added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973, are now home to the Office of Government Relations for Texas A&M University.

Prominent Jewish Businessman

Henry Hirshfeld immigrated to the United States from Germany at the age of 15. After serving with the Confederate Army in the Civil War, he moved to Austin from Mobile, AL. He married Jennie Melasky in 1868 and became a successful clothing merchant. In 1881, Hirshfeld was named the first vice president of the newly formed State Board of Trade. He was also founder and first president of Congregation Beth Israel in 1876. The Hirshfelds had eight children. Family members continued to reside in Austin until daughter Leila Hirshfeld Bernheim died in 1973.
