After seeing some of Austin’s beautiful architecture from the lake, spend the afternoon learning about architect Abner Cook, who designed many important buildings in town. Learn about the Federal style architecture at the Governor’s Mansion (1010 Colorado St). Then head over to the Neill Cochran House (2310 San Gabriel St) to see how he used Greek Revival architecture styles in his buildings.
