First United Methodist Church of Morgan. Organized in 1889, the Morgan Methodist Church first held worship services in the Baptist church building. At an 1891 revival, the fellowship initiated plans to construct this sanctuary. Originally a one-room structure, the building was enlarged in later years as additional rooms were needed. The Carpenter Gothic building exhibits some Greek Revival detailing and features lancet windows and a 1901-02 belfry. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1983 #1892

Le Mobilier national. En 1934, l'architecte Auguste Perret est chargé d'édifier ce bâtiment, pour abriter les collections nationales des objets d'ameublement destinés aux services publics de l'État, et accueillir des ateliers de restauration. Inauguré en 1936, le "Palais de Perret" correspond remarquablement à ce programme, auquel a été ajouté en 1964 un atelier de création. L'architecte a habilement utilisé la pente du ravin de la Bièvre pour masquer les importants volumes bâtis, et traité les façades avec un béton chargé de gravillons colorés. En contrebas and dans les mêmes années, l'ancien jardin de la Manufacture des Gobelins, autrefois propriété des Cordelières de Lourcine, a été aménagé par Jean-Charles Moreaux.
