The Swisher-Scott HouseBanker John Milton Swisher (1819-1891) built this residence in 1853 in the 400 block of San Antonio St. Noted architect-builder Abner Cook designed the Greek Revival house. In the 1920s, Dr. and Mrs. Z.T. Scott found the building in deteriorated condition. They moved it to this site, restored and enlarged it. A prominent physician and longtime chief of staff at Brackenridge Hospital, Dr. Scott (1880-1964) helped found the Austin Heritage Society.
