Winedale is one of five divisions of the Center for American History, an organized research unit of The University of Texas at Austin that facilitates, sponsors, and supports teaching, research, and public education in U.S. history. The Center acquires, preserves, and makes available for research archival, artifact, and rare book collections; and sponsors exhibitions, conferences, video documentaries, oral history projects, grant-funded research, and publications.

Winedale is a complex of nineteenth-century structures and modern facilities situated on 225 acres near Round Top, Texas. Winedale fosters an understanding of Texas history and culture through research, teaching, and public service. Its research collections include nineteenth-century buildings and extensive collections of decorative arts and material culture objects.

The Winedale Center for the Quilt is a CAH program that partners with the Alliance for American Quilts to acquire, document, preserve, and present information about quilts and quilt history. Winedale’s Quilt Collection contains more than 300 quilts dating from 1800 to 2002, with special strengths in quilts made in or brought to Texas. It includes quilt collections assembled by Miss Ima Hogg, Kathleen McCrady, and Joyce Gross. Study of these quilts is supported by the Center for American History’s extensive holdings documenting quilt history, which are housed in its Research and Collections Division on the UT campus in Austin.

The Center for American History’s Quilt Index Project entered data and digital images into the Quilt Index for approximately one hundred antique quilts in its Winedale Quilt collection, including seventeen collected by Miss Ima Hogg and twenty-six made or collected by Kathleen McCrady. CAH will add other quilts from its collection in the future.
