Historical background of Winedale Historical Center

The Winedale Historical Center, located in the small community of Winedale in northeastern Fayette County, Texas, is an outdoor museum and study center dedicated to Texas history. The Winedale property was purchased in 1963 by Miss Ima Hogg (1882-1975), a Houston philanthropist, arts patron, and advocate of cultural and educational programs, in order to preserve and restore the historic Stagecoach Inn, located on the property.

In 1965, Miss Hogg collaborated with the University of Texas at Austin to begin developing a cultural study center at Winedale. By 1967, she had given the University of Texas the acreage, the restored buildings and an endowment for their upkeep. At that time, the University of Texas founded the Stagecoach Inn Council to adminster the restoration of the Inn. Today, the once simple farmstead has expanded to contain seven historical buildings situated on the 190-acre tract and is known as the Winedale Historical Center.

Beginning in 1969, the University of Texas' School of Architecture began sponsoring workshops in areas of Texas architecture and historic preservation. By 1975, these workshops evolved into the ongoing Winedale Institute in Historic Preservation, a four-week, in-residence, interdisciplinary course in the documentation and recording of historic sites in Central Texas. It is affiliated with the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) of the National Park Service, offering experience in historic documentation, ink on Mylar drafting and National Register of Historic Places documentation. The Institute was held under the direction of University of Texas Architecture Professor Wayne Bell and was open to undergraduate and graduate students in fields such as architecture, interior design and American studies.

The Winedale Historical Center has hosted tours and cultural events for the general public, such as the annual Winedale Festival, which includes the Shakespeare at Winedale Theatre performances, and orchestral concerts. The Winedale museum offers exhibitions in Texas cultural history. In addition, the Center provides a setting for scholars, craftsmen, and students to study, observe and recreate buildings and artifacts from the mid-19th century to the early 20th century.

Scope and Content of the collection

The materials of the Winedale Historical Center (1963-1993; 12.4 linear feet, 30 boxes), consist of the records of the Winedale Historic Site, a cultural museum and study center, and the Winedale Institute in Historic Preservation, a program of the University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture. The Administrative Record series, (1963-1993; 0.8 linear feet, 2 manuscript boxes), contains correspondence, reports, photographic materials, plans, drawings, agendas, memos, rosters, course materials, financial documentation, printed materials and broadsides detailing the history, the restoration process, and the donation of the site to the University of Texas at Austin by Ima Hogg. Of particular interest is the initial restoration planning (1963-1967) conducted by University of Texas Professors Wayne Bell and Blake Alexander, and by Walter Freytag, chairman of the Fayette County Historical Survey Committee, as well as the April 1967 dedication ceremony organized by Blake Alexander. Early fundraising and planning for restoration projects are documented; included is the preliminary plan for development of Winedale properties (1972).

Photographs, negatives, log books, maps, notes, reports, creative works and field note drawings created and maintained by the Winedale Institute in Historic Preservation (1973-1992; 11.6 linear feet, 20 manuscript boxes, 5 photo boxes, 1 document box) detail the Institute's administrative functions and work in the documentation of architecturally historic sites. It includes historic research on the owners, sites, and locales, as well as architectural renderings and photographs. Buildings documented are not limited to the Winedale Complex, but also include the Fayette County Survey and sites in other counties, including: Austin, Colorado, Hays, Refugio, Travis, Washington, and Williamson. The Winedale Institute in Historic Preservation records mostly document residential structures, but also include commercial sites, such as the Kreische Brewery Complex, [erected 1860s], the Burton Cotton Gin, and a business block [erected 1889-1902] in downtown Taylor, Texas. Many of the projects include transcripts and/or audio tapes of oral histories of former occupants of the buildings. If final measured drawings were produced, they were separated and transferred to the Texas Architecture Archive.

The Neuhaus reference material (1.76 linear feet, 1 manuscript box, 1 document box) is an artificial collection that was purchased by the Winedale Institute in Historic Preservation. The correspondence (in German script), photographic material and scrapbook document Ludwig Eduard (L.E.) Neuhaus and his immigration from Ellerburg, Germany, to Lavaca County, Texas, in 1846, and his settlement of Hackberry, Texas. The Neuhaus Complex was surveyed by the Winedale Institute in 1992, and this reference material aided their work.

Series B: Winedale Institute in Historic Preservation project records, 1973-1992
11.6 linear feet, 20 manuscript boxes, 5 photo boxes, 1 document box

Series Abstract
The Winedale Institute in Historic Preservation project records series contains photographs, negatives, log books, maps, notes, reports, creative works and field note drawings. The series documents students' work in the documentation of architecturally historic sites. Students conducted historic research on the owners, sites and locales, sometimes conducting oral history interviews, as well as producing architectural renderings and photographs. Buildings documented include those in the Winedale Complex as well as the Fayette County Survey, and work done on sites in the following counties: Austin, Colorado, Hays, Refugio, Travis, Washington and Williamson. Some of these projects were documentation for the Historic American Building Survey (HABS). Most of the project sites are residential structures, but commercial sites such as the Kreische Brewery Complex and the Burton Cotton Gin also are included. The partially chronological order established by the Winedale Historic Center library largely is preserved.

Series C: Neuhaus reference material, 1847-1891
1.76 linear feet, 1 manuscript box, 1 document box

Series Abstract
The Neuhaus reference material was purchased by the Winedale Institute in Historic Preservation. The correspondence (in German script), photographic material and scrapbook document Ludwig Eduard (L.E.) Neuhaus and his immigration from Ellerburg, Germany, to Lavaca County, Texas, in 1846, and his settlement of Hackberry, Texas. The Neuhaus Complex was surveyed by the Winedale Institute in 1992, and this reference material aided their work. The complex, constructed between 1847 and 1881, consists of three primary structures. A homestead and store accommodated his family residence and mercantile business. The Neuhaus-King House was built in 1881 for the family of his eldest son.
