From the Austin American Statesman:

The house once sat where the Hilton downtown now dwells. It was once encased inside the Pit, a barbecue restaurant, and was nearly demolished in 2000. Historians and city leaders wanted to save the home and its detached kitchen, so the Hilton's developer paid for the structures to be moved across the street to Brush Square.
