The Littlefield Home was built in 1894. It was the residence of Major George Washington Littlefield and his wife, Alice. It would not be possible to tell the story of The University of Texas without the mention of G.W. Littlefield. His love of education and generous gifts can be reflected throughout the campus. The house is an Austin landmark and one of the few remaining examples of the grand Victorian mansions that once peppered the University neighborhoods. Littlefield bequeathed his home to the University, and it became part of the campus in 1935, after Alice’s death. Occupants have included the Music Department, the Navy R.O.T.C., and today, the University Events office. The first floor of the home is available to host events for university departments and student organizations. Outside entities are not able to reserve the space.
