Ammon Underwood Museum

Ammon Underwood came to East Columbia in the 1830's.  He partnered with Catherine Carson in this boarding house.  Catherine was a widow and one of the first 300 colonists in Stephen F. Austin's original colony.  He married Catherine's daughter Rachel.  They went on to build a vital mercantile business.  


The Ammon Underwood House has been preserved as a museum to show us a way of life during the early 1830's in Texas.  The house is important historically because of its age, its method of construction, and the contributions of the family who lived here. 


The Sweeny-Waddy log cabin was moved from its site on the old Sweeny plantation and has been preserved as an example of life prior to the Civil War.

 
 
 

First Capitol Historical Foundation a 501(c)3 non-profit is responsible for maintaining the house and grounds.  Join us for our annual fundraising event Ghosts Along the Brazos.  It is family oriented and history based.  Scroll down for this year's event and like Ghosts Along the Brazos on Facebook. 
 
Tours are available by appointment through the West Columbia Chamber of Commerce (979) 345-3921.
 
 
This book was published by the foundation to document East Columbia's history.
