The Wynne Home

Then and Now

This is the story of the Gustavas A. Wynne family and the home Mr. Wynne built for his bride in Huntsville, Texas, in 1883. During their lifetime and through the generations since, the Wynne family has occupied a prominent place in the economic, religious and social life of the community and created an evolution of the original honeymoon cottage into the classical home of today. It is also the story of the magnanimous gift of the home to the city in 1998 and the reconstruction and adaptive reuse of the structure as a community arts center. Photographs both old and new document the history and open the doors to a home and to a lifestyle of generous contribution to the city and the region.
