Historic Preservation: Margaret Bowie Home on UT Austin Campus

The last round of posts included a photo album of College Station, so I thought I should reciprocate with an item related to UT. The oldest structure on the Austin campus is a home that originally belonged to Margaret Bowie, widow of Rezin Bowie and sister-in-law of his brother Jim. The home was built in 1853, and was occupied until the early 21st century. 

As you'd expect, the house has been remodeled extensively and has deteriorated since it became vacant. Preserving it is a difficult issue, as explained in this article in the Austin American-Statesman.
