Historical downtown Governors Mansion

Holiday Rental House -
7 Bedrooms , 5 Bathrooms , Sleeps 20
Austin, Texas
Old Hollywood meets Old West Austin.

In 1927, the Fergusons built this home, “The Windsor House”, for $8,500. This home played host to some of the most significant dignitaries of Texas political culture, both visibly and from behind the curtains. Whether it was Ladybird Johnson stopping by for tea with Miriam to garnish her endorsement for Lyndon when he was running for senate, or Ann Richards dropping by to say “Hello” to her friend Miriam “Ma” Ferguson. The home silently became the nucleus of the Ferguson’s poetic political culture, known as “Fergusonism”, and many of Austin’s most prominent political families would join the Ferguson’s for their private parties in the walls of their “Windsor house”, aptly named by its location and prominent corner on the edges of Austin’s historic Pemberton Heights facing downtown and the capital.

Visited Austin for the first time and this house was perfect for our large group. Nice kitchen and lounging areas with TVs in every room. Located just outside of the action which was easily accessible by Uber or skooters.
