Elisabet Ney Museum
Nestled in the north end of Hyde Park. the Elisabet Ney Museum is the former home and studio of the artist who preserved the likenesses of foreign dignitaries, aristocrats and many of Austin 's greatest figures. Her sculptures are displayed all over town, but her home is the epicenter of her work as well as where much of the politics, philosophy and progress happened in the early days of our city. The salon where Sam Houston and Stephen F. Austin once sat is just one of the awesome historical settings you'll find in this hidden gem of the city.
Ney's most famous sculptures of Stephen F. Austin and Sam Houston are prominently displayed out in front of the capitol building, and her sculpture of Gen. Albert Sidney Johnson is on display at his grave at the Texas State Cemetery.
