Historical Note

Winedale, one of five divisions of the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History, is a complex of 19th-century structures and modern facilities situated on 225 acres near Round Top, Texas, in northern Fayette County. Winedale's mission is to foster an understanding of Texas history and culture through research, teaching, and public service. Winedale preserves and makes accessible its research collections of 19th-century buildings and their period furnishings, sponsors public programs, and serves as a conference site for non-profit educational groups. Winedale's Visitor Education Center, located in the historic Hazel's Lane Oak Cottage, contains exhibits that acquaint visitors with the history and development of the Winedale property and historic structures and that introduces them to Winedale programs and points of interest.
