A fascinating life story captured in a restored house. When we went there was a temporary exhibition about the history and understanding of post traumatic stress disorder. It was both fitting and moving. Definitely worth the stop. It is right next-door to the restored home of O. Henry which is also by donation. Make time for both!

Suzanne Dickinson was a Noncombatant survivor of the Alamo, a rugged woman with a colorful past, And this is a tour of one of her last homes. There are historical artifacts and the tour guide was excellent who conducted this quick tour. There is no cost for the tour.

After the fall of the Alamo, Santa Anna gave safe passage and used Suzanne as a messenger sent to Sam Houston demanding that he surrender or face the same fate. If your student of Texas history this may fill a void of information regarding that era.
Susanna's house is right next to the O Henry house which is also a quick and very good little tour.
Allow about 30 minutes for both and parking at streetside pay by meter.

Even those that don’t like history classes love a great story, and the Joseph and Susanna Dickinson Museum documents a fascinating one! Susanna, one very tough woman, survived the Alamo with her child to be paid by Santa Anna as a messager to Sam Houston and joined Houston on the Runaway Scrape. If any of that story is not familiar to you, you’ll be engaged by this museum, located in downtown Austin right next to the O. Henry Museum. The museum is very well organized, very informative and engaging, and staffed with friendly, knowledgeable staff...and it’s free! A historical gem in downtown Austin, one of many!

I was happy to walk and read thru the Joseph and Susanna Dickinson Hannig museum in Austin. Staff was available, and not overly assisting. Fun photo op inside, for the ladies.

This is a charming and well presented museum it is only open Wednesday to Sunday.
The front door maybe a bit stiff giving the impression of being closed.
But persevere it is well worth the visit.
The staff are knowledgeable and really helpful.

We were looking for the O. Henry House and walked into the this one.

What a delight. The docent was extremely knowledgable and fun to talk with.

Yes, the house is quite small but it is worth the time to drop in.

It's right next door to the O Henry Museum, and I'd recommend visiting both at the same time. Like the O Henry Museum, it's small but has interesting details. Worth doing, as long as you have the appropriate expectations.

The staff were engaging and helpful to describe and tell the history of the former occupants of that era. It was great to see the contents of the house and see the exterior of the house in a relazing outdoor setting. I would like to back when I come back to Austin.

It's interesting that it's here, and Hannig had a colorful life quite apart from surviving the Alamo (she made good in the end, which is always nice) - but really this is just a quick stop. You can do this and O'Henry next door in an hour and feel satisfied. Both are free.
