For a not-so-typical take on Austin history, visitors can experience the ghastly tales of this historic city on this storyteller-led haunted walking tour. Get ready for a good scare as you head out for your nighttime adventure to uncover tales of ghosts, murderers, and the spooky stories in between. Stop at haunted attractions, including the Driskill Hotel, and hear about how Austin has developed over the decades.

This collection of homes was built from the 1850s to 1910. The most famous is the John Bremond House. The block of homes is part of the National Register of Historic Places. If you are into historical homes, these are among the best-restored homes we have seen during this trip to Texas.

from the turn of the 19th Century. Many have been turned into businesses, but a few still appear to be private homes. Very ornate with beautiful grounds. Worth a looksee

The Bremond Block Historic District is only 4 blocks from the Texas state capitol. The district is bordered by West Seventh, West Eighth, Guadalupe and San Antonio streets. It has of many beautiful historical houses dated from 1850s to 1910. Most of the homes are now businesses, mostly lawyers and accountants. The homes are not open for tours. I enjoyed 20 minutes walking on the sidewalks around the homes. There is limited pay street parking in the neighborhood.

It is worth a quick walk around the block. None of the houses are open to the public and have very clear no trespassing signs everywhere. Beautiful houses, just don’t expect more than a 10-15 minute walk around the block.
