    Austin’s oldest standing frame structure was built in 1841 to represent France in the new Republic of Texas. Now it’s a museum and concert venue selling "J'Adore Texas" t-shirts.

    The historic residence was built by the French diplomat Alphonse Dubois de Saligny to the Republic of Texas in 1840-41. It became a museum under the Daughters of The Republic of Texas in 1956.

    If you love history as much as we do, you'll love the clever offerings of their Museum Store. Especially the "J'Adore Texas" T-shirts.

    The lawn stage vibe is lovely, but the tent on the Hill stage is already getting crowded.
