A place known as La Casita Blanca was established as the Casa Museo Agustín Lara in honor of the famous musician poet from Veracruz. Built over forty years ago, the building that now houses the House Museum was property, according to the chronicler Paco Píldora, Vice Admiral Álvaro Sandoval, at that time Director of the Navy School, who gave it to Marco Antonio Muñoz, Governor of the State, who was subsequently ceded it to Agustín Lara. After the death of the musician poet, occurred in 1970, the house was abandoned for decades, until in 1989 began its reconstruction due to the initiative of the Cultural Institute of Veracruz and the Civil Association Friends of Lara.
