Tour The O. Henry House Online

We would love to see you at the museum, but if you can't make it just yet, you can still explore William Sydney Porter's life in Austin! 

The O. Henry museum is now open to the public for regular hours. We look forward to seeing you Weds-Sun from 12:00pm-5:00pm!

Take a closer look at the long process the little house has gone through to remain in tip top shape by watching the renovation process with these episodes of Renovation Revelations!

Exhibits explore William Sydney Porter’s life in a social, family, and creative context as well as the recent acquisition of his first professional commission which consists of 27 hand-drawn illustrations which were originally made to accompany the memoirs of Joseph T. Dixon, a miner who had spent several years prospecting in the Rocky Mountains.
