Britton-Evans Centennial House
Centennial House aka the Britton-Evans House was built in 1849 by Rebecca and Forbes Britton on land acquired from Col. Henry Kinney, the founder of Corpus Christi. Centennial House was used as a hospital during the Yellow Fever epidemic and was also used as a hospital and officers' mess hall for the Federal Army in 1866. It remained in private hands until 1964 when it was purchased by the Corpus Christi Area Heritage Society, restored and opened as a House Museum.
