Rich in History

The oldest standing home in Brenham, the Giddings Wilkin House is important historically and architecturally. It offers a glimpse into the early lifestyle of Brenham’s most important citizen of the 19th century and the innovations he brought to the region.

Classic Elegance

Originally a two-room dog-trot with an upper sleeping loft, the house was enlarged and remodeled several times. It now has two floors and eight rooms and has been restored to depict life in the mid 1860’s.

The house is fully furnished with period and original Giddings and Wilkin family pieces, including a 3 piece Eastlake bedroom suite. Also on display are many photos, paintings, garments and other artifacts from the two families.
