Moody Museum adds Saturday visiting hours


The home of Texas' youngest governor, Dan Moody, will now be open to the public on Saturdays. This is in addition to regular open hours for visitors every Friday and Sunday . The museum, located at 114 W. Ninth St., is open all three days per week from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free.

The Moody Museum shares the story of Governor Moody’s passion for justice, his family and the Taylor community that helped shape his legacy. Moody was the first to successfully prosecute a case against the notorious Ku Klux Klan when he was District Attorney for Travis and Williamson counties. He is credited with having “broken the back” of the Klan in Texas by sending four Klansmen to prison in 1924. According to author Ken Anderson in his book Dan Moody, Crusader for Justice, “Moody took Texas from being the number-one Klan state at the beginning of 1924 to the most anti-Klan state in the country by the end of 1924.”
