In 1875 Porfirio Diaz planned his rise to power in the house originally located at this site. Diaz's rebellion or his "Plan de Tuxtepec" was formulated here, and carried out in Oaxaca, Mexico. By November 1876 Diaz was serving his first of seven terms as president of Mexico. The Brownsville Heritage Museum opened at this site in 2002.
