Visit the home of the master of the short story. – In Short
William Sidney Porter, or O. Henry, lived in Austin from 1884 to 1897, when he worked as a reporter, bank teller, draftsman and pharmacist. In fact, many of his stories were set in his various Austin haunts. This Queen Anne-style cottage-turned-museum is the only remaining Porter home. Many of the artifacts from his life are on display here and this is also the location of the annual O. Henry Pun-Off World Championships.
