Military History Institute

The Military History Institute is also located on the University of Texas campus at the same location as Research and Collections. The Institute focuses on key military engagements of the United States, with a primary focus on World War II. Its collections are available for research and educational purposes. The Institute also does outreach through conferences and lectures.

Sam Rayburn Museum

 Sam Rayburn Museum in Bonham
Sam Rayburn Museum in Bonham

The Sam Rayburn Museum is located in Bonham. It contains exhibits documenting the life and career of former Texas congressman and longest-serving Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Sam Rayburn (1940-1947, 1949-1953, and 1955-1961). The Rayburn Museum became a division of the Briscoe Center in 1991 and is open free to the public.

Briscoe-Garner Museum

The Briscoe-Garner Museum (formerly the John Nance Garner Museum) is located in Uvalde. The museum documents the lives of John Nance Garner and Dolph Briscoe, both Uvalde natives and historically important political figures from Texas. On November 20, 1999, the City of Uvalde transferred ownership of the Garner Museum to The University of Texas at Austin to become a division of the Briscoe Center for American History. In 2011, the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System approved the renaming of the John Nance Garner Museum to the Briscoe-Garner Museum, in honor of the late Governor Dolph Briscoe.

Winedale

Winedale is a complex of nineteenth-century structures and modern facilities situated on 225 acres of land near Round Top. Winedale offers examples of early Texas architecture and crafts, an interpretive center, continuing education seminars and other public programs.

Miss Ima Hogg visited the site weekly for review of the project with John Young, a recent architectural graduate of Rice University, who was engaged by Miss Hogg to manage the restoration, perform historical research, hire and train local workers in restoration skills, procure materials, design property plans and prepare progress reports (now in the University of Texas Library). Local workers supervised by Newton Peschel were Newton Vokel, Martin Bartels and Thomas Smith. A mason, Mr. Yoakum, constructed foundations and chimneys.[1][2][3]
