Laredo
Located on the border between Mexico and the U.S., on U.S. I-35 and Mexican Federal Highway 85, Laredo is America's largest inland port and one of the oldest border crossing points. Once capital of the briefly held independent Republic of the Rio Grande, the city has survived a long history of conflict and friendship between the U.S. and Mexico. Its legacy is a rich community boasting unique shopping, lively entertainment and festivals, including the month-long Washington's Birthday Celebration.

The museum is a Mexican vernacular structure, constructed in 1830 with an 1860 addition. It was once the home of Bartolome Garcia, prominent rancher and mayor of Laredo. According to tradition, in 1840, the structure served as the capitol of the Republic of the Rio Grande. The Museum is considered a historic house museum which features displays recreating an authentic c.1830 Home in Laredo. The building is a Recorded Texas Historical Landmark and a Contributing Structure to the San Agustin National Register District. Along with its neighbors, San Agustin Cathedral and La Posada Hotel, the museum forms a triangle of the most visited historic landmarks in the city. less
