The Alumni House is one of the oldest buildings on the Texas State campus and home to the Texas State Alumni Association.
A German craftsman built the Victorian-style family home in 1896. In the 1920s, the owner of the house rented rooms to the college's students.
One of those students was future U.S. President Lyndon Baines Johnson, who lived in the house for two semesters. Current house furnishings include the desk and chair used by President Johnson when he signed the Higher Education Act on the university campus in 1965.
