The museum is the boyhood home of the youngest governor of Texas, Dan Moody. The home is located at 114 West Ninth Street and is available for tours every Friday and Sunday afternoon from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Special tours can also be requested.

Born in 1893 in Taylor, Texas, Dan Moody grew up to be the youngest governor of Texas. As a small boy, Dan worked on the family dairy farm and later found work as an electrician. As District Attorney, he accomplished a task that no 1 else had ever dreamed possible: he was the first person to successfully prosecute and convict a member of the Ku Klux Klan for a crime in 1923. Governor Moody served 2 terms from 1927 to 1931 and later opened a law office in Austin, Texas. 

His family home has been fully restored and still contains many of the family heirlooms and furnishings.
